Static durability of vehicle structures

FEA (Finite Element Analysis)

Static durability of vehicle structures

Characteristic service loads of the vehicle, such as acceleration, cornering, or braking, are modeled using quasi-static loads.

Field of expertise:


Application area:

Fatigue| Welded structure



The structure is modeled in whole, using a shell model. Boundary conditions are applied through a simplified suspension. Stress results are then used for evaluating constant amplitude fatigue of the welds, and it provides a quick and reliable insight into the structure’s stiffness, and durability weak-spots.
