DesignLife Fatigue Analysis Software

DesignLife Fatigue Analysis Software

nCode is the leading developer of fatigue analysis software in the World. DesignLife provides fatigue life prediction from finite element results to answer the question “how long will it last?” or “will it pass the test?” before you even have prototype. In use by major OEMs and their suppliers around the world, DesignLife is the easiest to use, most powerful and flexible CAE / FEA fatigue and durability software on the market.

Typical Applications

DesignLife is used by FEA fatigue and durability analysts:
* Early in the design process to get it “right first time”
* To simulate physical tests prior to prototype
* To trouble shoot existing durability problems
* In aerospace automotive, consumer goods, heavy engineering, defense and many other industries

Key Features
* Process Flow Based: Easy to configure – extremely simple to use
* Integrated Test and CAE Analysis. Use the right loads for your analysis – straight from the test department!
* Multi threaded processing capability to crunch big models quickly
* Capture processes – and re-deploy again and again
* All the fatigue processing models you expect – SN, EN, Seam Weld, Spot Weld, Multiaxial, transient vibration, linear, static, modal superposition and more
* Transparent support of FEA file formats including; ANSYS, NASTRAN, ABAQUS, IDEAS…


DesignLife helps you:
* Reduce product development time
* Minimize over design – while still meeting durability targets
* Avoid product recalls and warranty claims
* Capture and deploy standard approaches across your fatigue and durability analysis process.
