Development of Web-Based Fatigue Analysis System for Machine Components and Structures
A fatigue analysis program to calculate fatigue lives of mechanical components and structures from FE(Finite Element) results is developed. The useful characteristic of this program is operated under Web environment. So, any designer who design fatigue strength of components and structures can use without other program installation. For the assessment of multi-axial fatigue damage, signed equivalent stress method and critical plane approach have been employed. Each method is compared and the results of Signed von Mises stress method has similar to the results of Smith-Waston-Topper's parameter using critical plane approach. The results were compared with those from commercial program FE-Fatigue6.0 and it was observed that fatigue life and cumulative damage distribution calculated applying same fatigue resistance curve. The results of calculated fatigue life using Web based program agree well with those from FE-Fatigue6.0.
