Application of Rubber Fatigue Analysis with Endurica Software.

Application of Rubber Fatigue Analysis with Endurica Software – an Endurica Master Workshop 

A LIVE Rubber Fatigue Analysis master workshop with Endurica Software.

Make the most of Endurica’s simulation workflows: CL, DT, and EIE

Wield Endurica software to virtually evaluate fatigue performance and solve design issues at the concept stage. Attendees have returned to their firms and revolutionized their design processes by using the software to diagnose and solve fatigue issues.

2022 Rubber Fatigue Analysis Workshops are LIVE and ONLINE for your safety and easy access

The key workshop for understanding and wielding the power of Endurica’s workflow is presented virtually with many great additions. Our workshop – the Application of Rubber Fatigue Analysis with Endurica Software – features live lectures and live exercises focused on Endurica’s workflow and software solutions. This workshop is a LIVE training event and a link to the presentation of each class will be made available to registrants for their reference/review. These links will be active for seven days after the class date so attendees will have time to make up classes, they may not be able to attend live. This course will NOT be distributed or broadcast beyond this time period.  

December 6-9, 2022 Lectures 9:00 a.m. – Noon EST live, online with additional time available for questions during Office Hours 1:00 – 3:00 daily during the course duration. Register Online

Course Objectives

  • Review three famous cases involving elastomer failure, and the issues at stake in fatigue analysis.
  • Understand key ingredients of successful fatigue analysis for rubber
  • Be able to select and specify material models that accurately describe elastomer stress-strain and fatigue behavior.
  • Understand principles needed for accurate fatigue analysis: critical plane analysis, rainflow counting, and damage accumulation.
  • Set up a Finite Element model to ensure accurate fatigue analysis.
  • Use Endurica Software to solve durability issues involving multiaxial, variable amplitude loading
