M 48: Fatigue Analysis from Finite Element Calculations

Consider the fatigue strength of your components and structures early in the design stage,
from finite element results post-processing.

OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of the training, participants will be able to:
• Build a finite element model suitable for fatigue analysis,
• Know different fatigue life approaches for simple and complex loadings,
• Apply these approaches to evaluate the fatigue strength of mechanical components or structures.

PRE-REQUISITES

Good understanding and knowledge of material strength and finite element analysis.

PEDAGOGICAL MEANS

Alternating theory and practice through exercises and case studies. Please bring along a scientific calculator.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Engineers and technicians from Design and Simulation departments, in charge of strength calculations and aiming to optimize their structures for fatigue.

COURSE OUTLINE

  • Good practices in finite element modelling for fatigue post-processing: modelling rules, global analysis and postprocessing options.
  • Stress-Life approach for high cycle fatigue.
  • Strain-Life approach for low cycle fatigue.
  • Multiaxial loadings analysis.
  • Fatigue of welded structures: seam welds hot spot and notch stress approaches, introduction to spot welds analysis.
  • Conclusion

TRAINER

This course will be carried out by Dr Mohamed BENNEBACH, structural analysis and fatigue expert at CETIM.

Dr. Mohamed BENNEBACH
Dr. Mohamed BENNEBACH
Mohamed is a structural analysis engineer, expert in fatigue of components and structures, with 28+ years’ experience in this field.

He works mainly in the fields of components and structures design, life and residual life evaluation, fatigue testing.

He is involved in private and R&D projects, training and several standardization working groups (CEN/TC 147, UNM05) where he develops specific fatigue calculation methodologies.

AREAS OF EXPERTISES

 
• Fatigue testing and material characterization: establishment of material fatigue damage laws,
identification and quantification of influencing factors on fatigue behavior, optimization of fatigue tests.
• Fatigue design and calculation of structures: determination and analysis of life profiles, design assistance, choice of materials and criteria adapted to service conditions, post-processing of finite element results and/or measurements, development of specific calculation methodologies.
