50% of product failure is due to Mechanical Fatigue! How can you predict & avoid it?

Fatigue Analysis

Market data indicates that more than 50% of product failure is due to fatigue, which occurs in many different mechanical components such as turbines and other rotating equipment operating under intense, repeated cyclical loads. The primary tool for both understanding and being able to predict and avoid fatigue has proven to be finite element fatigue…

Saving Costs with Virtual Prototyping

Virtual prototyping

Leveraging the combined powers of 3D solid modeling and design analysis software, engineers can now test a design on the computer instead of using prototype-test iterations for design. CAD models have become virtual prototypes, and design analysis has supplanted physical testing, enabling faster, less costly, and more optimized product development. In addition, computer-based design analysis allows…
