Safe Technology has partnered with Wolf Star Technologies, experts in loading calculation and FEA model correlation, to provide a unique and advanced solution for accurate in-situ load measurement.
The accuracy of fatigue predictions is directly related to the accuracy of the loading profile. Uncorrelated loading profiles will lead to incorrect fatigue calculations. Even small errors in loading knowledge can lead to large errors in fatigue life prediction because of the log-log nature of fatigue life models.

Date: Wednesday 11 July
Time: 1.30pm – 4.00pm
Presenter: Tim Hunter, CEO Wolf Star Technologies
Historically, predicting fatigue life has been challenging because even simple structures undergo complex loading. Many engineering organizations rely on historical data or multi-body dynamics models for loading profiles, often without correlation to the FEA model. With fe-safe/True-Load the unknowns in loading are eliminated. The FEA strains will match the measured strains with unprecedented accuracy. fe-safe/True-Load offers unparalleled in-situ load calculation with typical strain gauge correlation to within 2% of measured values!
fe-safe/True-Load™ is of benefit to those who know very little about their loadings but want to perform fatigue life calculations as well as those who already run advanced testing programs but want to improve their efficiency and reduce testing costs.
