Coupling of commercial software to fatigue analysis

Coupling of commercial software to fatigue analysis. Development of database with appropriate parameters for cohesive element fatigue life estimation. The activities to link cohesive element code to the fatigue analysis procedures and code used by nCode have already been done. Associated with this is the database work to ensure that parameters needed by the CIE software are available to the process. Good progress has been made on the latter. Cohesive Interface Elements within FEA for fatigue crack propagation rate estimation.

The project software may be used alongside other FCGR models and procedures in nCode’s crack growth suite of programmes. It is also possible that this software will be employed jointly with our partners on this project. At this stage it is too early to say:
- What the market size is and
- Therefore what the best route to market would be.
