Consultancy Services Related to Fatigue and Design

Between the MSC Software and the CAEfatigue Team, we have experience related to the fatigue design of dynamic systems in both the time and frequency domains for linear and non-linear situations. We are able to undertake fatigue evaluations for parts subjected to specific load conditions including component and system design. Please go to the MSC Software website for further details.

  • Electronic packaging reliability.
  • Prequalification of shaker table tests.
  • In-service failure investigations for both fatigue and damage tolerance (crack growth) situations.
  • Fatigue design using most solver stress results including Abaqus, Ansys, Nastran, Optistruct.
  • Specializing in vibration fatigue problems.
  • Full body fatigue simulation methods in both time and frequency domain.
  • Test profile design and fatigue life evaluation.
  • Test acceleration and fatigue life evaluation.
  • System durability of integrated systems including automated processes.
  • Research projects considered.

Training Solutions Geared to your Corporate Needs

Fatigue, Dynamics & FEA. MSC Software offers a vast amount of training materials for fatigue theory and for the CAEfatigue software.  In fact, the CAEfatigue product comes with free, embedded training videos and presentations on fatigue theory and software operation. However, if further training is desired, MSC can offer a Technology focused (non product specific) course covering fatigue life estimation techniques for dynamic systems including frequency domain loads and analysis, accelerated testing methods and shaker table fatigue simulation processes. Technical methods covered can also include fatigue analysis and design methods for full scale body simulations (cars, trucks, aerospace systems, etc.). Vibration environments such as that defined in military standard MIL-STD-810 or ITOPS are a common source of loading specification and are covered in the course.
