- Automotive OEM
- Offshore Energy
- Automobile Manufacturer
- Raw Materials Supplier
- Consumer Electronics
- Battelle Project
For an automotive parts supplier bidding on new OEM business, Endurica completed a fatigue analysis of the proposed design in operation, enabling the client to demonstrate the durability of their design to the OEM.
For a marine customer with wave-induced loads and a tight design deadline, Endurica characterized the client’s material, completed FEA and fatigue analysis of design options, and recommended a solution capable of safe operation for a given target life.
For an agricultural systems developer, Endurica investigated a case of cracks developing in early product returns from the field. Our analysis was able to diagnose the cause of the cracking and provided insights the developer used to correct the issue.
Structural Vibration Isolation System
For a civil engineering firm, Endurica developed a fatigue qualification test and analysis for justifying the target operating life of an elastomeric structural vibration isolation system.
Company making electric cars needs to lessen overall weight. Engaged Endurica for Road Load study of 3 proposed designs. Endurica tested simulations under road loads and picked the most durable.
Raw Materials Supplier
Tested 5 materials. Made calculations to show how the material behavior would translate to rubber components – tires, transmission mount, bushing, flex joint. Raw Materials Supplier doesn’t make any of these but their materials are used in them. Now they can go to their clients with this information.
For consumer electronics application. Analyzed an elastomeric component for load and durability. Software predicted crack location and lifetime. Very close to field performance. Materials modeling completed the project.
Tested materials, modeled scaling, fatigue failures, down hole oil and gas. Complete published details.
The Endurica difference…
100% FOCUS ON ELASTOMERS AND DURABILITY We specialize in material modeling, testing, simulation, crack nucleation and fracture mechanical approaches.
LEADING TECHNOLOGY We wrote the Endurica CL™ and fe-safe/Rubber™ fatigue life solvers, and developed the experimental specs for the Fatigue Property Mapping™ testing service. We can fully leverage its capabilities for your project.
DEEP EXPERIENCE With over 85 years’ combined rubber engineering experience, the Endurica team brings strong value to projects that call for our specialist capabilities.
FLEXIBLE SCOPE Endurica has experience with project scopes that range from 1 day to several years.
LEGAL SENSITIVITY Durability studies frequently center on sensitive intellectual property and liability concerns. Endurica routinely works under a customer’s non-disclosure agreement, and we are proud to present our solutions in a professional manner that inspires confidence.
