S-Life Plastics is the strength assessment software within the PART software suite for plastic components made out of unreinforced or short-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic materials. Results from a structural simulation are automatically assessed. The software is used as a post-processor.
With S-Life Plastics, mechanical stresses from FEM simulations are processed in a way so that an evaluation of static strength and fatigue strength is possible. As a result, among other things, the static and cyclic utilization ratios of the component are displayed as a contour plot.
