July 15, 2010 - The world’s fastest growing motorcycle manufacturer, Triumph Motorcycles, has selected fe-safe™ advanced fatigue analysis software to help produce fully optimized designs on a range of world class components in shorter times than ever before.
fe-safe has been chosen by Triumph to help produce advanced, robust, lightweight parts in a shorter design cycle by enhancing its in-house fatigue analysis procedures. Traditionally, fatigue analysis has been carried out using hand calculations, spreadsheets and physical testing. By creating a simulation based design process that combines Pro/Mechanica FEA software and fe-safe, Triumph can explore more design options and optimize designs so that they can be confident that their designs will pass physical tests first time.
Triumph selected fe-safe after detailed research, because the software is based on sound fatigue theory with the adaptable functionality necessary to perform fatigue analysis on the wide range of components designed by the company.
Triumph’s aim is to design and craft motorcycles that deliver a great riding experience through the fusion of a well-balanced, easy to handle chassis and strong, flexible engines. In line with a company philosophy based on innovation and expertise, a decision was made to adopt the most advanced method of fatigue analysis currently available.
