nCode International Ltd is launching its latest fatigue analysis
system, called ICE-flow DesignLife, at this year's Automotive
Testing Exhibition in Stuttgart, which opens today, 9 May.
DesignLife, says nCode, is the first fully integrated CAE and Test
environment for advanced durability engineering, designed to enable
the rapid prediction of fatigue hotspots and product lifetime.
DesignLife is compatible with the leading finite element codes and post-processors, enabling seamless exchange of data with systems such as NASTRAN, ANSYS and ABAQUS. It is a module of the nCode ICE-flow system, which also integrates data acquisition, data handling and process management in a web-enabled environment.
nCode Chairman, Brian Dabell, claims: " Uniquely, DesignLife shows the entire workflow from end-to-end, and in trials some customers reported a 90% reduction in time in certain key areas."
