Article by Sam Sharkawi updated October 22, 2018


How do you know your models will last? Is there a warranty in place? What happens when you need to apply a cyclic load SOLIDWORKS has the tool to do exactly that! The SOLIDWORKS Simulation Fatigue Module is available with Simulation Standard and is included in every SOLIDWORKS Simulation package.

The fatigue module is a powerful tool but is simple and user friendly like the rest of the Simulation suite of modules, and is directly integrated:

With a fatigue study set up (static study, number of cycles), the results are presented and are clear and easy to read! We can see where the maximum damage will be:

We can also see how long certain areas of the model will last:

With this great module located in SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard, it is easy and cost effective to find the life of the model!

Watch how the life of this bike pedal is optimized!
