Fatigue Analysis – Manually Moving 200 Gigs of Stress Files

Learn about MSC Nastran Embedded Fatigue It’s not fun for sure, but there is a great alternative. Traditionally, a fatigue analysis involves moving stress results from an FEA program to a fatigue program. You could be: Copying and pasting large, perhaps 200Gb in size, intermediate files from folder to folder and program to program Or …

Lightweight, High Performance Composites – How to Account for the Uncertainty in Composite Material Properties

Question: How can I account for the uncertainty in composite material properties? Answer: You can perform a Stochastic Analysis. I've quoted a description from Andrew Main's Use of Finite Element Analysis to Create Robust Composite Designs – Going Beyond First Ply Failure. Stochastic analysis is not a method that was developed for composites but the large …
