Ansys nCode DesignLife

Fatigue Life Prediction

Stress & Strain Based Fatigue Life Prediction

Ansys nCode DesignLife works with Ansys Mechanical to reliably evaluate fatigue life. Using the results of finite element analysis (FEA) from Ansys Mechanical and Ansys LS-DYNA, it accumulates damage from repetitive loading to determine a product’s predicted life. You can quickly evaluate the effects of different materials and alternative geometries for new designs, and then optimize them for the product’s expected usage — long before the first prototype is built or expensive testing takes place.

  • Unparalleled Accuracy and Technology
  • Reduce Overall Product Development & Validation Cost
  • Simulation-Led Design to Reduce Reliance on Physical Test
  • Flexible and Easy-to-Use User Interface

With a new interface on the Ansys Workbench, you can enjoy a customized workflow that integrates with other products while staying within a single interface. You also have the flexibility to access your nCode user interface directly from Ansys Workbench. The ease-of-use makes the power of nCode DesignLife even easier to realize.
