What dose FATLOAD Parameter mean?

Recommended Posts

I am doing the fatigue practice and at my practice file.

 

I don't know what FATLOAD mean exactly. For example if our model today will subject a F=100N

 

At TID I know we need to set the TABLE to input and when I plot the .csv file

 

I seem it look like the Load Time History photo. So it this mean our total time is 2500 sec?

 

And the load have positive and negative for scale 1 and -1? (At here our model will subject 100N & -100N for 2500sec)

 

And the LDM I just can't know about it.

 

Finally what is mean for the SCALE? Because we have load time history we can see our load is for 1 and -1.

 

At here we set 3 so that means out load will scale for 3? (Final it will ill subject 300N & -300N for 2500sec)

yes,

 

LDM is a factor which takes of units between applied and time history.

 

The scale is also a factor which scales the load and time history

HI,

 

It acts a scale factor between fea and time history units. If the units are different, provide the scale factor so that the results are normalized.

@Prakash Pagadala  Really thanks to your apply!

 

So if our scale factor and time history units are different.

 

We need to change this value? (Does here have any value suggestion about if the factor is different from time history) 

 

And the result will normalized? (What does here "normalize" mean?)

HI @LKZ

It is used as a scale factor to normalize the finite element stresses/strains to obtain the stress/strain distribution due to a unit loading.

LDM is used to scale the units if the unit of loads in FEA and test are different.

It is best advised to maintain consistency of units between FEA and TEST and thereby keeping the value of LDM as 1.

@Prakash Pagadala Thanks to your reply.

 

So it recommend for 1 because it suggest to maintain our model's unit as the same as the FEA load unit.

 

If our model's unit is as same as the FEA load unit we don't need to change this value.

 

Here I think we need to pay attention about our model about its unit.

 

It should as the same as load.  Then I don't need to change the value.

Yes, if the units are not consistent, this will lead to incorrect results and also playing with the scale factor is not advisable

The test loads mentioned above.... is it the SN curve test data?

What you mean by FEA loads and test loads ?
