Safe Technology Announces Fatigue and Durability Seminars, USA


A series of seminars covering hot topics in the field of fatigue and durability. Sessions include modern fatigue theory, weld fatigue and high temperature fatigue analysis. Durability by Design seminars will look at fe-safe™, Safe Technology’s technically advanced fatigue analysis software for FEA models. fe-safe™ incorporates the most sophisticated fatigue analysis technology available in commercial software and is changing the way design engineers perceive fatigue analysis software tools. The seminars will provide a technology update, demos of fe-safe™, Verity® and High Temperature Fatigue Analyisis modules. A three day fatigue theory seminar is also scheduled taking a detailed look at modern methods of metal fatigue analysis.

Durability by Design: Introduction to fe-safe™ (Half Day)

Hosted by Safe Technology customer, Cummins Inc.

Presented by: Professor John Draper, CEO, Safe Technology Ltd

Location: Columbus, Indiana

Date: March 11, 2008

Fee: FREE

fe-safe™ - the most technically advanced fatigue 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. John Draper will provide a technology update on modern methods of metal fatigue and a demo of fe-safe™.

Overview: This FREE half day seminar covers the problems that can now be solved using modern 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 using fe-safe™ with FEA software
* An introduction to the Verity® method for fatigue of welded joints
* A demo of fe-safe™

Who should attend: Design and Test Engineers responsible for product durability in the ground vehicle, aerospace and manufacturing industries interested in durability analysis. No previous knowledge of fatigue is necessary.


Durability by Design: An Introduction to fe-safe™ and Verity® in fe-safe™ (Full Day)

Presented by: Professor John Draper, CEO & Dr Radwan Hazime, Senior Technical Manager, Safe Technology

Location: Texas, venue tba

Date: June 3, 2008

Fee: FREE

This seminar covers the material described in the half day seminar above plus a closer look at Verity® including:

A demo of fe-safe™ and Verity® in fe-safe™
Applications examples for Verity® in fe-safe™

Verity® is the revolutionary structural stress method developed by Battelle for the fatigue of welded structures. Verity® has won several prestigious industry awards and was last year licensed exclusively to Safe Technology Ltd to create an add-on module in fe-safe™ for weld fatigue life prediction. John Draper and Radwan Hazime will give an overview of the method and show its advantages in terms of accuracy and ease of application. This course provides a unique opportunity for attendees to learn more about the revolutionary structural stress method for the fatigue life prediction of welded structures.

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 of welded structures. No previous knowledge of fatigue is necessary.


Durability by Design: An Introduction to High Temperature Fatigue in fe-safe™ (Full Day)
Hosted by Safe Technology Partner, Altair Engineering
Presented by: Professor John Draper, CEO & Dr Radwan Hazime, Senior Technical Manager, Safe Technology

Location: Altair HQ, Troy, Michigan

Date: June 5 2008

Fee: FREE

Overview: This seminar discusses the types of high temperature problems that can now be solved using the various methodologies for high temperature durability analysis in fe-safe™. A technology update in key areas of modern fatigue analysis is also provided.

fe-safe™ includes 3 different approaches to high temperature fatigue including add-on modules fe-safe/TMF™ and fe-safe/TURBOlife™. This seminar will highlight the differences between these approaches and which methodology is most appropriate for which applications.

Content:

* Multiaxial fatigue, 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
* Thermo-mechanical fatigue analysis including strain-rate effects, bulk stress relaxation and strain aging, with examples/case studies
* Creep-fatigue interaction methods – ductility exhaustion and strain range partitioning, with examples/case studies

Who should attend: Design and Test Engineers responsible for product durability in the ground vehicle, aerospace and manufacturing industries interested in high temperature durability analysis. No previous knowledge of fatigue is necessary.
