SOLIDWORKS Simulation Fatigue Analysis The process of progressive structural damage in a component subjected to alternating loading conditions that may lead to failure after a sufficient number of cycles accurately describes fatigue.  If you design products that need only to last for a single use, the rest of what you will read beyond this does not apply to you.  For those of us designing products that must last for multiple use cycles, even cycles into the tens of millions, fatigue […]

   Fishing is all about enjoying nature. The calm serene water, calling you to sit back, relax, sun bathe while you catch dinner.  Every summer weekend, Rod takes a break from rigors of work and impress on his family his fishing skills.   This seat has experienced many joyous moments, passed on wisdom, and helped create some amazing memories. The seat is mounted to the floor using a pedestal and base.  On a recent trip, Rod was enjoying his beer and […]

Fatigue Analysis of a Landing Gear using SOLIDWORKS Simulation

It is observed that repeated loading and unloading weakens objects over time even when the induced stresses are considerably less than the allowable stress limits. This phenomenon is known as fatigue. Each cycle of stress fluctuation weakens the object to some extent. After a number of cycles, the object becomes so weak that it fails. Fatigue is the prime cause of the failure of many objects, especially those made of metals. Examples of failure due to fatigue include, rotating machinery, […]
