Fatigue analysis software hits the fatigue hot spots (Safe Technology Ltd.)

fe-safe helps automotive specialist optimize designs for high temperature fatigue life

 

Sheffield, UK, January 5 2012: Safe Technology Ltd announces that Flexider Automotive (Italy) has selected fe-safe® durability analysis software to perform advanced fatigue analysis on automotive components for leading car manufacturers including Audi, Ferrari, Fiat Group, Iveco and Volkswagen.

Flexider Automotive, an IMCI Company, is a pioneer in the mass production of metallic decoupling flexible elements for gas exhaust systems for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. The company has developed, in collaboration with major car manufacturers, a new generation of damped flexible couplings capable of overcoming the issues caused by the use of catalytic converters on the whole exhaust system.

fe-safe ® from Safe Technology is a powerful, comprehensive suite of fatigue analysis software for Finite Element models. It is used to accurately calculate from FEA, where and when fatigue cracks will occur, the factors of safety on working stresses (for rapid optimisation) and the probability of survival at different service lives (the 'warranty claim' curve). Flexider automotive engineers will use fe-safe's thermo-mechanical fatigue analysis capabilities to calculate the effects fatigue on flex pipes and decoupling elements.

"These days, simply 'over-designing' a component by adding more material in order to extend fatigue life is not an option. The adoption of fe-safe ® allows for component designs to be tweaked and optimized at the virtual design stage, thus reducing the costly and time-consuming 'design-test-redesign' cycle", said Giuseppe Ruggiero, Durability Test Engineer, Flexider.

"Advanced high temperature fatigue analysis is a crucial feature for us and we were also impressed by the user-friendly interface in fe-safe ®, allowing easy and efficient input of data. There is a comprehensive materials database included and methodologies can be selected by the engineer to build up a powerful and personalised analysis tool".

About Safe Technology
Safe Technology Limited is the technical leader in the design and development of durability software and is dedicated to meeting its customers' most demanding applications.  Its flagship product, fe-safe® allows fast, easy and accurate fatigue life predictions for FE models.

In-depth knowledge of fatigue combined with expertise in software development allows Safe Technology to provide outstanding service - with basic and advanced training, software support, and consulting services provided by fatigue experts. Safe Technology develops, markets and supports its software products directly from offices in the UK and USA, by a network of independent distributors worldwide and via the worldwide SIMULIA network.
