Durability - Toolkit for Fatigue Analysis 글 편집

RecurDyn/Durability is a toolkit for fatigue analysis

RecurDyn/Durability is a toolkit for fatigue analysis that calculates fatigue strength and durability such as fatigue life, fatigue damage, and safety factor from the stress and strain results of a flexible body obtained through MFBD (Multi Flexible Body Dynamics) analysis. This fatigue analysis toolkit provides the prediction theory for engineering fatigue and about 180 material libraries.

In RecurDyn environment, the dynamic analysis of rigid bodies and flexible bodies and the calculation of fatigue strength can be performed quickly and easily without exchanging data with other software. Both FFlex and RFlex are supported the fatigue analysis using Durability.
