Fatigue Training Course

Date : Thursday, 5th September 2019 Time : 09:30
Duration: 2 Days
Price: € 950

The course is run in an interactive format over two days and includes many worked examples.


Knowledge of the stresses and strains represent just the first step in evaluating the strength of a component. Stresses often change over time and can generate damage accumulation in the material such that failure can occur at load levels well below the static failure strength. In this context, the assessment of components by FEA is a crucial tool in assisting the evaluation of fatigue performance during the design process.


2 Days – 9.30am – 17.00

Course Aims

Teach the basics of ANSYS in the following areas:

  • The main factors of material fatigue under cyclic loads
  • Becoming familiar with the possibilities and limitations in implementing different fatigue evaluation criteria
  • Discussed and performing ‘hands-on’ examples, you will understand the approach for evaluating the fatigue performance of components using FEA
Course Material

Training manuals are provided to all course attendees. The training manual is an exact copy of the material used during the two day course. Worked examples are fully documented in a Workshop Supplement which is also provided. Copies of all workshop files are also available to enable course attendees re-analyse course examples following completion of the Introduction to ANSYS Course.

  • All training material
  • Light refreshments during both days
  • Lunches on both days
