nCode DesignLife from HBM is an up-front design tool that identifies critical locations and calculates realistic fatigue lives from leading finite element (FE) results for both metals and composites. Users can go beyond performing simplified stress analysis and avoid under- or over-designing products by simulating actual loading conditions to avoid costly design changes. DesignLife features advanced capabilities for virtual shaker testing simulation, welds, vibration, crack growth, composites, and thermo-mechanical fatigue analysis.
