Welding is the most common fabrication process used to manufacture various industrial products. The weld regions have lower mechanical strength properties than parent metals joined and may inherently contain micro-cracks or other defects. On the durability side, the fatigue properties of the weld regions can be inferior to parent metals. Predicting the fatigue life of the weld components becomes a critical task in designing reliable components.
Different industries follow specific practices for estimating the fatigue life of weld regions. Ansys nCode DesignLife provides multiple approaches for predicting the fatigue life of weld assemblies from finite element results.
This webinar will provide insights into the fatigue life prediction methodologies and approaches for weld joint assemblies using Ansys nCode DesignLife solutions.
