Modern engineers often work on the design of increasingly complex systems that will experience a multitude of simultaneous loading factors – such as forces, thermal effects, and pressure. Ansys Workbench offers a range of options to streamline the process of incorporating these external loads into Ansys Mechanical so that Ansys users can accurately predict stress, strain and fatigue life for such complex systems with greater precision.
Welding is a commonly used method that plays a crucial role in the safety, structural integrity, and durability of many fabricated structures. Learn about the significant new features in Ansys Mechanical 2022 R1 which greatly aide the preparation of FEA models involving welded structures and will save you many days of model preparation time.
Guest post by Daniel Haasbroek, Principal Engineer Structural, thyssenkrupp industrial solutions including the recording of Daniel’s presentation at 2021 Ansys FEA User Group. Daniel has worked at thyssenkrupp for the past 14 years as a structural engineer specialising in balanced machines.
Fatigue is failure under repeated or otherwise varying load which never reaches a level sufficient to cause failure in a single application. Component seems to lose strength after multiple load applications, appears to get tired, hence the name “fatigue”. Failure caused by fatigue can be minor or catastrophic. The consequences of failure are…
