Fatigue - Quasi-Static (Low Cycle) (PFA_FATIGUE_QUASI)
Effective evaluation of the fatigue life of composite and metal
structures subject to static loads of constant amplitude.
Determines the initiation site in composite and metal structures
under the applied cyclic loading.
For each stress level, the degree of cumulative damage incurred
is calculated from the S-N curve, which can be derived from tests or found in
the open literature.
An efficient multi-factor interaction model (MFIM) can be used to
account for a broad range of factors that affect the fatigue life of a
structure such as temperature and surface finish.
Can be used with GENOA-PA to account for the probabilistic nature
Accurately evaluates the service life of composite or metal
structures subject to static and dynamic loads of constant amplitude.
Predicts the fatigue failure initiation site and its development
in aerospace, automotive and other composite structures.
Accounts for the probabilistic nature of fatigue.
