FKM inside Ansys – fast and easy strength verification!

With FKM inside Ansys, you can automatically generate operational or fatigue strength verifications for mechanically stressed components according to the FKM guideline, and in the shortest possible time. For users, a large part of manual data entry and error-prone formulas are eliminated. This results in a considerably easier interpretation of results.

Product Description

Fast strength evaluation with guideline-compliant verification according to the FKM standard

Highlights at a glance

FKM inside Ansys offers development and manufacturing companies the security of designing products reliably and quickly in a load-safe manner by means of a directive-compliant strength verification. The module reduces the time for strength evaluations of even complex scenarios to a minimum and relieves the user of manual entries.
