Fatigue Analysis from Finite Element Calculations

Consider the fatigue strength of your components and structures early in the design stage,
from finite element results post-processing.

Objectives:

Upon completion of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Build a finite element model suitable for fatigue analysis,
  • Know different fatigue life approaches for simple and complex loadings,
  • Apply these approaches to evaluate the fatigue strength of mechanical components or structures.

Date:

14th – 17th September 2021

Time:

14:00 – 17:00 (GMT+8) Singapore /
08:00 – 11:00 (GMT+2) Paris

Pre-requisites:

Good understanding and knowledge of material strength and finite element analysis.

Educational Approach:

Teaching alternating theory and practice through exercises and case studies. Please bring along a scientific calculator.

Who should attend:

Engineers and technicians from Design and Simulation departments, in charge of strength calculations and aiming to optimize their structures for fatigue.

Course outline:

  • Good practices in finite element modelling for fatigue post-processing: modelling rules, global analysis and postprocessing options.
  • Stress-Life approach for high cycle fatigue.
  • Strain-Life approach for low cycle fatigue.
  • Multiaxial loadings analysis.
  • Fatigue of welded structures: seam welds hot spot and notch stress approaches, introduction to spot welds analysis.
  • Conclusion

Trainer

This course will be carried out by Dr Mohamed BENNEBACH, structural analysis and fatigue expert at CETIM.

Dr. Mohamed BENNEBACH

Mohamed is a structural analysis engineer, expert in fatigue of components and structures, with 28+ years’ experience in this field. He works mainly in the fields of components and structures design, life and residual life evaluation, fatigue testing. He is involved in private and R&D projects, training and several standardization working groups (CEN/TC 147, UNM05) where he develops specific fatigue calculation methodologies.

Areas of Expertises

  • Fatigue testing and material characterization: establishment of material fatigue damage laws, identification and quantification of influencing factors on fatigue behaviour, optimization of fatigue tests.
  • Fatigue design and calculation of structures: determination and analysis of life profiles, design assistance, choice of materials and criteria adapted to service conditions, post-processing of finite element results and/or measurements, development of specific calculation methodologies.
  • Standardization: participation in national and international working groups.
  • Training: creation of training material and animation of several courses. More than 100 sessions animated.
