Random Response Statistics & Damage Sensitivity


Challenge
Dynamic analysis in the frequency domain requires advanced
response statistics to be output which have not previously been
available
Damage as a function of frequency or mode is also required

Solution
CAEfatigue VIBRATION (CFV) allows multiple correlated, multi- Complex RMS Stress
event loads to be applied
Both complex von-Mises stresses and complex Principal stresses
(for single inputs) are available as well as stresses on component
axes (X, Y, Z, XY, XZ, YZ)

Benefits
Result in different damage outcomes and the CFV code allows the
user to choose the parameter closest to his design requirements
Non-linear responses (elastic-plastic strain) and damage
sensitivity can be calculated from the linear solver output Plot of RMS Stress v Frequency

Advanced Random Fatigue Analysis


Challenge
Perform advanced random fatigue analysis in the frequency domain
Reduce the possibility of analysis churn (the need for repeated analyses)

Solution
CAEfatigue VIBRATION (CFV) allows the use of complex von-Mises stresses and
complex principal stresses as well as stresses on component axes (X, Y, Z, XY, XZ,
YZ)
Multiple correlated loads and multiple events supported
Implement the solution for any size of model
Both random (e.g. for impact detection) and fatigue analyses can be performed in
one run
All common FE solvers supported for solids, shells, nodal or element center output

Benefits Log Damage


Give different damage outcomes when compared to traditional component (X, Y, Z)
results
CFV code allows the user to choose the parameter closest to his design requirements

Fast Random Analysis For Models Of Any Size


Challenge
Perform fast random analysis for hyper sized models (OP2 or
ODB files > 3000GB)

Solution
CAEfatigue VIBRATION (CFV) has a unique running sum
moment calculation procedure that enables extremely large
models (e.g. 20,000,000 output points) to be processed
This solution enables finely meshed models or large multi-body Maximum Stress Level
systems to be evaluated in fractions of the time previously taken

Benefits
Advanced random response and fatigue results are available as
fringe plots and X-Y plots as well as a variety of other results
forms

Apply Sine-Sweep-on-Random Loading


Challenge
Apply frequency domain sine-on-random loading
Avoid repeated tests after unexpected failures

Solution
CAEfatigue VIBRATION (CFV) has a unique load mixing F F
capability that can apply a random and sine sweep loading 1 N

simultaneously, along with a mean load offset, if needed


Solution can be applied as a fully random (frequency domain)
solution or as a deterministic (time domain) implementation

Benefits +
This solution enables test specifications applied in the laboratory
to be more accurately replicated in analysis
Common laboratory test specifications can be replicated

Frequency Based Strain-Life Fatigue Analysis


Challenge
Perform strain based (Strain-Life) random fatigue analysis in the
frequency domain
Implement a Neuber notch correction

Solution
CAEfatigue VIBRATION (CFV) is unique in being able to

Strain-Life damage results are inherently more accurate
Scatter in analysis results is significantly reduced
The most advanced strain based fatigue coupon tests can be
used to generate material properties
Lower safety factors can be applied when strain based material
properties are used.

Time To Frequency Domain Loads Conditioning


Challenge
Nonstationary and multi-channel time domain loads are
encountered when analyzing large mechanical environments like
full body vehicle systems.
Typically 100 simultaneous non-stationary inputs and 100 events

Solution
CAEfatigue VIBRATION (CFV) has a unique and advanced
TIME2PSD process which converts time domain loads into the
frequency domain
Multi-input, multi-event, nonstationary time domain loads can
easily be converted into the frequency domain and can then be
easily integrated into the random analysis environment

Benefits
Large numbers of nonstationary loads can be processed and
Loads Conditioning & Conversion From Time To
used within a random analysis in one seamless step Frequency Domain
