ANSYS nCode DesignLife

Industry-leading Tool For Durability Analysis

ANSYS nCode DesignLife is an advanced industry-leading tool for fatigue assessment. It calculates stresses, strains and cumulate damage using finite element analyses results. It can be used integrated into ANSYS Workbench or standalone.

You can quickly create complex loading histories (duty cycles), pre and post processing signals.

All the state-of-the-art calculation methodologies are available for fatigue together with additional features:

  • stress-life
  • strain-life
  • spot welds
  • seam welds
  • vibration fatigue analysis
  • accelerated testing
  • virtual strain gauges
  • high temperature fatigue
  • crack growth
  • signal processing
  • short fiber composite
