fe-safe: the fatigue solver

Industry is putting increasing pressure on manufacturers to use less material to deliver lightweight but stronger components, lower warranty and recall costs and all in less time. Many companies use advanced finite element analysis to calculate design stresses, but the fatigue analysis is often still done by manually picking stress points for spreadsheet analysis. This is time-consuming and unreliable because it is easy to miss failure locations.

fe-safe is the technical leader in durability analysis software for Finite Element models. It offers its users the most accurate and advanced fatigue analysis technology for real-world industrial applications, and empowers them to better tailor and predict the life of their products. The solution has been developed continuously since the early 1990’s in collaboration with industry to ensure that it continues to set the benchmark for fatigue analysis software.

fe-safe is renowned for its accuracy, speed, comprehensive capabilities and ease of use. Regardless of the complexity of your fatigue analysis, the solution fits smoothly into your design process, enabling you to develop products that are designed for durability. It offers the user an easy-to-use fatigue analysis suite that provides reliable, accurate fatigue life predictions regardless of the complexity of your analysis. The suite directly interfaces to all major FEA suites (Abaqus, ANSYS, MSC Nastran, NEi Nastran, NX Nastran, Pro/Mechanica).


Verity for fe-safe: for welded joints and welded structures, including spot welds, the prediction of failure locations and the calculation of fatigue lives have traditionally been notoriously complex and difficult tasks that can often result in poor correlation with test data. The Verity mesh-insensitive Structural Stress Method has been developed and patented by Battelle. It is recognised as a major breakthrough in the fatigue analysis of welded joints for Finite Element models.

fe-safe/rubber: the first commercially available software tool for the fatigue analysis of rubber and elastomers.

fe-safe/TMF: fe-safe/TMF is used in conjunction with the standard version of fe-safe and incorporates additional time-dependent thermo-mechanical fatigue mechanisms.

fe-safe/TURBOlife: fatigue solver to take into account creep and creep-fatigue interaction.

fe-safe advantages

The fatigue solver helps our customers to increase their confidence in fatigue product behavior, to decrease the number of physical prototypes, to shorten time to market for their new products, to reduce their development costs.
