Fatigue Analysis

Fatigue Analysis

A fatigue analysis estimates how long it will take a structural detail to fail under repeated cycles of loading, whilst a crack growth analysis determines how long it will take to grow a crack in a structural detail from an initial size to the critical size.

A fatigue analysis can determine whether or not your product is going to go the distance or whether it is going to crack and fail prematurely. A crack growth analysis can either help with an in-service failure investigation, or it can allow an inspection regime to be put in place to prevent failure.

Following a fatigue and crack growth analysis you will have a better idea of whether you need to increase the thickness locally in regions of high stress or make small but important changes to the geometry.Through such analyses you will be able to fine tune your warranty policy and deal with probabilities, not guesswork.
