S-Life FKM at a Glance

S-Life-FKM is an easy-to-use software that enables an easy and automatic assessment of FEM simulation results according to the German FKM guideline [1]. The software is used as a postprocessor. With S-Life at the push of a button the computed stresses will be processed in such a way that an assessment of the static and fatigue strength according to the FKM guideline is carried out. As result of the assessment the static and cyclic utilization ratios will be displayed as contour plot. For particular individual nodes a comprehensive numeric report of the most important assessment variables can be requested as pdf printout for documentation purposes. As input the software needs the results of a structural simulation and some basic material properties. Interfaces are provided for various solvers. The scope of application is restricted to steel, cast iron and aluminum materials.

On-Demand Webinar

"S-Life FKM - Software for Strength Assessment"

Im Rahmen des Webinars stellen wir Ihnen unsere Software S-Life FKM vor. S-Life FKM ermöglicht Ihnen einfach und sicher für metallische Maschinenbauteile einen Festigkeitsnachweis nach FKM Richtlinie durchzuführen. Das Webinar umfasst eine Kurzeinführung in die Bedienung und stellt den Nutzen der Software anhand eines Demonstrationsbeispiels dar: statischer Festigkeitsnachweis und Ermüdungsfestigkeitsnachweis eines Sphäroguss Flanschbauteils unter mehreren gleichzeitig wirkenden Lasten.

Sprache: Englisch
Dauer: ca. 45 min.

Sie erhalten Zugang zum Webinar über diesen link. Das Webinar ist in Zusammenarbeit mit unserem Partner Altair Engineering entstanden. Aus diesem Grunde ist im Rahmen der Freischaltung des Webinars eine Anmeldung auf der Altair Engineering website erforderlich.
