Design Optimization for Fatigue Life

To ensure reliability of designs, fatigue life performance is often an integral part of today’s CAE evaluations. Fatigue life predictions are generally calculated from the results of finite element based simulations.This example illustrates how HEEDS Professional can be incorporated into the standard CAE-based design process for finding mass-efficient designs that also satisfy reliability requirements. The automated HEEDS Professional optimization process frequently yields designs that are better than those found from a manual search process, and in a fraction of the time.
