S-Life FKM at a Glance

S-Life FKM is a software that enables a simple and automatic assessment of FEM simulation results according to the German FKM code [1]. With S-Life FKM at the push of a button the calculated stresses by means of FEM will be processed in such a way that an assessment of static and fatigue strength according to the FKM code can be made. The area of validity in accordance with the FKM code is restricted to steel, cast iron and cast aluminum materials.
