Predicting Fatigue Failure to Improve Operational Availability
As we enter an era of reducing new equipment procurement coupled with a constrained spending environment, the sustainment community is under significant pressure to increase the life and operational availability of existing and aging assets with a flat or reduced budget. In these circumstances, repairing equipment or replacing components on a fixed schedule irrespective of condition or exposure history introduces unnecessary costs and down time. Advanced fatigue modeling coupled with physics based simulation is a proven way to predict the remaining life of equipment and components and drive toward optimized condition based maintenance. In this webinar we will review the trends and pressures facing the engineering sustainment community and discuss in detail the ANSYS nCode DesignLife solution.
