nCode DesignLife Online Trainings

Free Online Training for HWPA Members!

Overview

The HyperWorks Partner Alliance and nCode have teamed up to offer free online trainings to those who are unable to attend otherwise. Each course will introduce various aspects of nCode DesignLife and the first half hour will include an instructional presentation as well as a live demonstration. All of the training sessions will last 90 minutes and have some knowledge prerequisites.

Technical Requirements
  • Headset- VOIP is the only option available
  • Working install of nCode 8
  • Dual Monitors
  • Internet Connection
  • Paper copy of training material



Course Descriptions

    1. Introduction to DesignLife
    This online, interactive training class will serve as an introduction to perform fatigue analysis on FE models in nCode DesignLife. Attendees will become familiar with the nCode user interface and how glyphs are used to create processes. Both Stress-Life (SN) and Strain-Life (EN) fatigue calculations on FE models will be covered. The second half hour will include an SN fatigue worked example for the attendees to complete. The class will then be concluded with a question & answer session.

    Knowledge Requirements
    • Basic understanding of fatigue
    • Basic understanding of FE modeling


    2. Fatigue Analysis with Non-linear Geometric Loading
    This online, interactive training class will introduce Fatigue Analysis with Non-linear Geometric Loading in nCode DesignLife. The first half hour will include an instructional presentation as well as a live demonstration. Attendees will become familiar with manipulating the loading input to match up with the loadcases that were created in FE. The second half hour will include a Fatigue Analysis with Non-linear Geometric Loading worked example for the attendees to complete. The class will then be concluded with a question & answer session.

    Knowledge Requirements
    • Basic understanding of the SN approach DesignLife
    • Familiarity with modeling multiple loadcases


    3. Seam Weld Fatigue Analysis in DesignLife
    This online, interactive training class will introduce seam weld fatigue analysis on FE models in nCode DesignLife. The first half hour will include an instructional presentation as well as a live demonstration. Attendees will become familiar with the FE modeling requirements and the three technique for recovering stresses at the weld which is based on an Stress-Life (SN) fatigue approach. The second half hour will include a seam weld fatigue worked example for the attendees to complete. The class will then be concluded with a question & answer session.

    Knowledge Requirements
    • Basic understanding of SN approach in DesignLife
    • Familiarity with modeling sheets and welds as mid plane shells


    4. Vibration Fatigue Analysis in DesignLife
    This online, interactive training class will introduce vibration fatigue analysis on FE models in nCode DesignLife. The first half hour will include an instructional presentation as well as a live demonstration. This Stress-Life (SN) fatigue approach requires a Frequency Response Function (FRF) from FE and will simulate vibration tests driven by a random PSD or swept sine loading. The second half hour will include a vibration fatigue worked example for the attendees to complete. The class will then be concluded with a question & answer session.

    Knowledge Requirements
    • Basic understanding of SN and/or EN approach in DesignLife
    • Models and processes for the modal transient worked example


    5. Thermo-Mechanical Fatigue Analysis
    This online, interactive training class will introduce thermo-mechanical fatigue analysis on FE models in nCode DesignLife. The first half hour will include an instructional presentation as well as a live demonstration. Attendees will become familiar with the FE modeling requirements for thermo-mechanical fatigue and several method to perform the analysis. The second half hour will include a thermo-mechanical fatigue worked example for the attendees to complete. The class will then be concluded with a question & answer session.


Knowledge Requirements
  • Basic understanding of SN approach in DesignLife
  • Familiarity with modeling stresses and temperatures in FE
  • Models and processes for the modal transient worked example
