Using Simulation to Improve Durability

Awareness Seminar on 21st May 2018 in Brno, Czech Republic


According to Battelle between 80-90% of all structural failures occur through a fatigue mechanism with a total cost of 4.4% GDP to the world’s economy
[From Comet to Dreamliner -a History of Aircraft Fatigue, posted on behalf of Rolls-Royce Heritage Trust]

Durability is defined as: “the ability to withstand wear, pressure, or damage.”

In many cases, fatigue failures occur suddenly with little prior warning and so it is important to design durable structures to resist fatigue failure.

All issues related to durability attract a lot of interest within the engineering simulation community. This seminar was an informative and educational day covering the process and best practices for predicting and optimizing product durability and fatigue life.

This awareness seminar brought together practitioners and academics in all relevant disciplines who shared their knowledge and experiences, discussed problems and challenges, to facilitate further improvements in durability for engineering applications.
