FE-SAFE/RUBBER

Fe-safe/Rubber is a plugin to Simulia’s fe-safe fatigue analysis software. It offers the Endurica CL solver through the fe-safe user interface. Give fe-safe/Rubber  a finite element simulation of your loading history, specify your material(s), then fe-safe/Rubber computes the fatigue life of your rubber part. 

Benefits

  • Calculate fatigue life and failure location on your part
  • Diagnose and resolve material, geometry, and loading issues to get durability right
  • Mobilize quickly with ready-to-use workflows that give you the edge
  • Scope analyses to fit your aim and budget with support for both “draft quality” and “high accuracy” simulations

Features

  • fe-safe/Rubber offers the right material models for capturing your elastomer’s behavior.
    • Nonlinear hyperelastic stress-strain behavior and Mullins effect
    • Rate laws for both cycle- and time-dependent crack growth, including threshold effects and ozone attack
    • R-ratio effects for both strain crystallizing and amorphous materials
    • Temperature dependence of material properties
  • fe-safe/Rubber offers accurate accounting of damage accrual under multiaxial, variable amplitude loading history.
    • Crack precursor growth tracking based on Fracture Mechanics
    • Critical Plane Analysis checks every potential crack orientation and location to find the true worst case
    • Rainflow Counting on history of the critical plane
    • Reports fatigue life as repeats of the given history

Technical Notes

  • Compatible FEA solvers: Abaqus
  • OS:  Windows
  • Licensing: available exclusively through Dassault Systemes
