Strength verification with FKM nonlinear including nonlinear material properties

FKM NL inside Ansys

With FKM NL inside Ansys, an automated static verification and a fatigue strength verification, for mechanically stressed components, according to the FKM Nonlinear guideline, can be performed in the shortest time possible, with low-cycle and high-cycle events. The final report generation includes the complete presentation of all the design parameters.

  • Everything according to a standardTapping the plastic properties of the material

    Directive-compliant strength verification with consideration of non-linear material behavior

  • Prevent failureCalculate crack life with cyclic loads

    Fatigue strength verification for given load-time histories (Low and High Cycle Fatigue)

  • Fast and preciseStrength verification for a complete assembly

    Never again overlook critical locations and calculate the life of your product as efficiently as possible.

  • At the push of a buttonReport results for selected locations

    With just a few steps you will receive the desired verification for your component and you can use the documentation for further assessments.

Product description

FKM verification of static and cyclic loads with FKM NL inside Ansys

Detection in the low-cycle range now possible with an automated procedure!

With FKM NL inside Ansys, verification parameters and calculation results are introduced as result objects in Ansys Workbench. A first verification is thus permanently linked to the corresponding FE analysis. The required model data is transferred directly from Ansys Workbench and the verification is automatically calculated for all desired verification points (nodes).
