Sheffield, UK, October 24, 2012: Safe Technology Ltd announces a new release of the advanced suite of fatigue analysis software for FE models, fe-safe®. fe-safe 6.3 demonstrates significant increases in speed of analyses as well as a new licensing system. Other developments include a fully integrated module for the fatigue analysis of rubber, enhancements to the Verity® Spot Weld capability, a new Materials Database, and fe-safe plug in for ANSYS Workbench 14.
Highlights of the new release:
· Significant increases in speed - up by 44% on average on all supported platforms
· New FlexNet Licensing System - offering greater familiarity and ease of use
· fe-safe/Rubber™ - a fully integrated module for the fatigue analysis of elastomers based on Endurica technology, now taking advantage of fe-safe's friendly user interface and with direct links to Finite Element codes
· Verity® spot weld enhancements - a new capability to “auto-detect” spot welds has been added, thereby providing the means to assess thousands of spot welds by using a single Verity definition, thus simplifying and significantly speeding up the analysis
· New extended Materials Database - a new materials database of more than 350 materials has been released with fe-safe v6.3 at no additional cost. It runs externally to fe-safe and can be deployed on a separate server. Additional information has been added for microstructure, chemical composition, heat treatment, specimen type and failure criteria. Equivalent specifications have been obtained from national standards, so that materials can be referenced by US, European, Chinese, Japanese and other standards
· fe-safe Component for ANSYS Workbench 14, enabling the integration of accurate design durability analysis into the Workbench 14 project environment
· New Surface Finish Correction data
· Extension of Critical Distance Methods: The benefit of using critical distance methods is that higher stresses may be used. If we are prepared to accept cracking, we can base our design (or calculated safety factors) on the subsurface stresses instead of the surface stresses.
