Most simulation users employ FEA to predict breakage as defined by the stress-strain material curve. However, in reality, most part failure is due to fatigue damage accumulated over time, and this can be predicted. FEMFAT (Finite Element Method Fatigue) is the number one engineering software tool for fatigue life prediction. Import your stress analysis from any popular solver into FEMFAT and understand its fatigue life with ease.
Two decades of development done hand in hand with real-world users means FEMFAT is foundational to the success of countless products in use today. It is thoroughly tested, highly reliable, and replete with customizations and features to suit a wide array of applications and industries. It is a software Caelynx enthusiastically employs in many projects, and we are therefore proud to be its exclusive North American reseller.
