Fatigue is a major source of product failure. Most products exposed to repeated cyclic loadings will eventually fail.
Caused by repeated or otherwise varying loads, fatigue is a result of repetitive stress over time, as microscopic changes become cracks that cause malfunction. Optimising a product’s shape, size and material via simulation is the most cost-effective way to arrive at the desired product life.
The combination of reliable ANSYS structural mechanics technology and industry-leading simulation software with time-tested durability capabilities from HBM delivers a product that is ideal for predicting product life.
