Configure Fatigue Analysis Using a Factor of Safety Calculation

Use the FOS tool to calculate fatigue based on a factor of safety value.

This approach uses the Dang Van method to calculate the multi-axial factor of safety.

  1. Click the arrow next to the fatigue module icon and select the FOS tool from the list of options.

    The FOS dialog opens.
  2. Select the FE model units.
  3. Select either Time Series or Transient Response as the loading type.
