As part of a contract with Siemens AG Germany we implemented several extension modules for the existing software package "FatAss", a toolset for fatigue assessment of steel and aluminum components.
The project also included the development of geometry and stress interface modules for the commercial FEM programs Ansys, Abaqus und HyperWorks. Compared to the possibilities of standard FEM programs the delivered solution offers the following key benefits:
The software modules are currently deployed at 3 Siemens sites in the divisions Railway Bogies and Light Trains.
