How to Predict the Fatigue Life of Welds
After an introduction to the welding process and weld geometries, we compare the nominal stress method, notch stress method, and hot spot stress methods for predicting the fatigue life of welds.
Modeling Fatigue Failure in Elastoplastic Materials
One example of fatigue failure? Bending a metal paper clip back and forth until it eventually breaks. Learn how to model this type of behavior in elastoplastic materials using COMSOL Multiphysics®.
How to Model Contact Fatigue in COMSOL Multiphysics®
Contact fatigue occurs when two parts in contact experience a time-dependent contact pressure. Learn how to model this structural phenomenon in COMSOL Multiphysics®.
Using a Simulation App to Evaluate Fatigue Life in a Frame
The Frame Fatigue Life demo app is an example of how simulation apps can save you time and energy in evaluating the impact of fatigue on a structure. Take a look here >>
Improving the Operational Lifetime of a Reciprocating Engine
Many of today’s motor vehicles rely on reciprocating piston engines as their source of power. Multibody dynamics analysis can be used to analyze the operation and performance of these engines.
How to Obtain Fatigue Model Parameters
2 challenges when modeling fatigue: 1.) selecting a suitable fatigue model for your application and 2.) obtaining the material data for the selected model.
