Hey guys, I’m a mechanical engineer student and I participate in a project where I analysis the structure of a modern tricycle. I need help with the fatigue analysis. I make the training of fatigue by Altair and tried make the analysis, but I’m not sure of the results. I think the problem it’s on the TABFAT. About the TABFAT: My analysis has 1D and 2D elements. I obtained the following values in the Linear Static Analysis: Analysis 1D Analysis 2D σ_max 24,59 MPa 267,9 Mpa σ_min -19,71 MPa 0 MPa Can I represent the load cycle of my “vehicle” like a sinusoidal curve? Can you show me how I represent it? Should I represent these values for each of the fatigue analysis like one analysis for 1D elements and other analysis for 2D elements? Can I “mix” these values for the two analyses representing σ_max = 24,59 MPa and σ_min = -19,71 MPa? I think that a correct method is consider my load cycle like a variable load, but I don’t obtain experimental data. About the MATFAT: I acquired the MATFAT data by the eFatigue website, but I don’t obtain the SE (standard error of log(N)). How I find out this? If I consider SE like “Default” (zero), how will affect my analysis? Note: I’m making a SN analysis. Thanks for helping!
Hello, In fatigue analysis in Optistruct, Do we also have to multiply the fatigue strength value by 2 while defining FL in MATFAT like we are doing for SRI1 value?(stress range= 2* stress amplitude) e.g if the fatigue strength of a material is 100 MPA then do i have to put 200 for FL in MATFAT? TIA
