High-temperature durability simulation software

  • 03-Oct-2011 11:42 EDT


The latest release of HBM’s nCode DesignLife software offers new solutions for thermo-mechanical fatigue (TMF) calculations. This feature in nCode version 8 enables a wide range of high-temperature durability simulations. nCode DesignLife uses stress and temperature results from industry-standard FE software and provides CAE durability simulation to estimate component life in these extreme operating conditions. Building upon previous projects with industry partners investigating available TMF methods, this commercial software implementation in nCode DesignLife 8 will provide cost-effective tools that can be used to solve real-world design problems. Implemented methods include the Larson-Miller creep model and Chaboche methods for creep and fatigue and also combined creep-fatigue interaction.
