Durability & Weld Fatigue Seminars

In June, Design and Test Engineers can attend a series of weld fatigue and durability seminars presented by noted fatigue & durability authority, Professor John Draper, CEO of Safe Technology Limited (UK) and Dr Pingsha Dong, Technical Director of Welded Structures Research at the Battelle Institute and the lead researcher behind Verity™. These seminars explore the modern theories and practical application of Durability and Weld Fatigue and offer an introduction to fe-safe™ and Verity™ in fe-safe™.

Durability by Design - An introduction to fe-safe™ and the Verity™ methodology
Monday June 19
Altair Engineering HQ, TROY, MICHIGAN
Presented by: Professor John Draper, Safe Technology Ltd
Dr Pingsha Dong, Battelle Institute

This FREE seminar will cover: problems that can now be solved using durability analysis software for FEA models. A technology update in key areas of fatigue analysis is provided: multiaxial fatigue, effects of temperature, notch sensitivity and residual stresses; Why traditional methods of metal fatigue analysis get it wrong; An introduction to modern methods of metal fatigue analysis and why they get it right; An introduction to Verity™; An introduction to using fe-safe and the Verity™ module with FEA software; A live demo of fe-safe™ and Verity™ in fe-safe
• fe-safe™ - the leading durability analysis software for FEA models. fe-safe™ incorporates the most sophisticated fatigue analysis technology available in commercial software. As a result, fe-safe is changing the way design engineers perceive fatigue analysis software tools. Professor John Draper will provide a technology update on modern methods of metal fatigue and live demo of fe-safe™.
• Verity™ is the revolutionary structural stress method developed by Battelle for fatigue of welded structures. Verity™ has won several prestigious industry awards and has been showcased in articles in both Business Week and Time magazines. Dr Pingsha Dong will give an overview of the method and show its advantages in terms of accuracy and ease of application.
Who should attend: Design and Test Engineers responsible for product durability in the ground vehicle, aerospace and manufacturing industries interested in durability analysis and fatigue welded structure. No previous knowledge of fatigue is necessary.

Recent Advances in Weld Fatigue Research and An Introduction to the Structural Stress Method and Verity™

Tuesday June 20th Venue: Altair Engineering HQ, TROY, MICHIGAN
Thursday June 22nd Venue: Engineering Methods Inc (EMI), CINCINNATI, OHIO
Presented by: Dr Pingsha Dong, Battelle
This course provides a unique opportunity for attendees to learn about the most powerful structural stress method developed to date for fatigue evaluation of welded structures, from its mechanics basis, numerical implementation and mesh-insensitivity, to S-N data correlations and life predictions. Participants will become familiar with some of the most important issues associated with fatigue of welded joints and existing design and analysis methods.
Participants will be trained to:

•        Understand the state of art analysis techniques for welded structures
•        Solve basic fatigue design problems
•        Effectively interpret lab fatigue test design
•        Perform CAE fatigue life estimations for small-scale fatigue problems
Who should attend: Design and Test Engineers responsible for durability of welded structures

Modern Methods of Metal Fatigue Analysis Theory
Date: Wednesday June 21st – Friday June 23rd
Venue: Altair Engineering HQ, Troy, Michigan,
Presented by: Professor John Draper, Safe Technology Ltd

The seminars will cover: an introduction to modern theories of metal fatigue and their practical application through worked examples and interaction/discussion. There is a strong emphasis on what is possible and the pitfalls to avoid. A professional volume of course notes forms a self-contained reference book.
Introduction to fatigue; local stress-strain fatigue; materials data; signal analysis for fatigue; using stress-life data; examples of fatigue failures & fatigue tests; geometric effects; fatigue analysis in practice; introduction to biaxial fatigue; biaxial fatigue using equivalent stress/strain; critical plane analysis; fatigue lives from finite element models; statistics & reliability; crack growth analysis; fatigue lives from the PSD; fatigue test & design ; additional advanced topics
Who should attend: Design and Test Engineers responsible for product durability in the ground vehicle, aerospace and manufacturing industries. No previous knowledge of fatigue is necessary.
