nCode DesignLife is a leading CAE solution for fatigue life prediction from finite element results. DesignLife enables engineers to go beyond simplified stress analysis and avoid under- or over-designing products by simulating actual loading conditions. DesignLife was recently used in collaboration with an alpha version of Altair’s Durability Director for the Durability Overnight project; an undertaking where an entire durability simulation was achieved in only a few hours.
Durability Director supports the fatigue analysis process by incorporating the management of finite element and multi-body dynamic simulation jobs Altair plans to support nCode DesignLife for use with Durability Director in the future.
HyperWorks users can gain access to DesignLife through the HyperWorks Partner Alliance, a program which allows customers to utilize their previously acquired HyperWorks Units to access a growing suite of third-party solutions at no incremental cost.
