Thermo-Mechanical Fatigue (TMF) using Ansys nCode DesignLife

Webinar Description | Thermo-Mechanical Fatigue (TMF)

Ansys nCode DesignLife is an up-front design tool that identifies critical locations.  In addition, calculating realistic fatigue lives from leading finite element results for both metals and composites relating to thermo-mechanical fatigue (TMF).


Thermo-Mechanical Fatigue (TMF) in Ansys

Insights into material properties under concurrent cyclic thermal and mechanical strain are provided by thermo mechanical fatigue (TMF). Thermo mechanical fatigue testing is a crucial step in the qualifying of materials for a variety of industries, including aerospace, oil and gas, transportation, and more. It is used to assess the combined effects of temperature and strain cycling on a material.

Thermomechanical Fatigue Tests

Unlike isothermal fatigue tests, thermomechanical fatigue tests use cyclic strain and cyclic temperature to forecast how materials will behave over time and under various strain levels in high-temperature or high-stress environments. TMF is especially helpful for materials and machinery that operate in a variety of thermal conditions, such turbine parts and engine parts.

The thermo mechanical fatigue specialists at SimuTech Group are highly skilled and have a multitude of knowledge in fatigue testing schemes.  Thtough Ansys engineering simulation, we can accurately measure material behavior under thermomechanical fatigue conditions using cutting-edge software.

Thermal Environment Material Testing

Critical characteristics that must be carefully regulated include the mechanical strain range, strain rate, temperature rate, and the phase relationship between temperature and mechanical strain.
