Fatigue assessment


A very common task in our projects is having to find out whether a part or a whole structure has sufficient fatigue strength to withstand the required number of loading cycles. Generally, fatigue analyses are carried out according to standards or guidelines which can be very complex.

We perform fatigue analyses with the software LIMIT, a powerful commercial FEA post-processing and assessment code developed by our company.

The following areas are covered:

  • Verification of welded and non-welded structures
  • Implemented standards and guidelines:
  • FKM, DVS 1612, DVS 1608, EC3, EC9, EN 13001, EN 17149, DIN 15018, BS 7608, GB 50017, GB 8408, IIW
  • Verification of multiaxial loading according to the method of Dang Van
