With Ansys nCode, components’ fatigue strength is automatically simulated under different load combinations (high-cycle/low-cycle fatigue).
Automated fatigue strength simulation of components with nCode
Ansys nCode’s user interface allows quick personal workflow creation. The data flow between the individual objects (glyphs) is clearly illustrated. It is also possible to program your own computational methods (e.g. for mean stress correction) via Python or Matlab and insert them in the workbench project page.
Ansys nCode DesignLife for fatigue and operational strength analysis
Software for recording the output and fatigue life of components
Ansys nCode DesignLife can be used for mechanical, thermal, static, transient and modal-based analyses such as PSD. It is also possible to combine individually computed analyses such as transient temperature analyses and static analyses via a hybrid loader to create a time profile.
- Direct integration into the Ansys Workbench interface
- Definition of own nCode workflows
- Own computational methods can be integrated using glyphs
- Short simulation time using filter runs
- Reduced data volume for the FE model (MCF file, MSUP)
Key facts and use cases of Ansys nCode DesignLife
Fatigue life analysis
Fatigue life analysis for an electric motor under a PSD load spectrum in three directions in space.
Wind energy workflow
Damage analysis according to a certifier’s requirements. CADFEM-created workflow as per the specifications of DNV GL.
Analysis of the loads of an excavator. nCode uses various load spectra to analyze the loads on an excavator, including time series, transient analysis and vibration loads.
Simulation of the fracture point on a gear shaft. In the damage analysis of a gear shaft with nCode, the simulation reveals a fracture after a small number of cycles, which can be easily prepared.
