Dassault Systèmes welcomes Safe Technology!

SIMULIA's picture

We're very pleased to announce that Dassault Systèmes has acquired Safe Technology, Ltd., the developer of the fe-safe durability simulation application suite.

Even if you haven’t used their products, you’ve probably heard the name – Safe Technology
has been a partner of ours for over 15 years, providing a fatigue
solution to Abaqus users through fe-safe. As an add-on to Abaqus/CAE,
fe-safe uses proven techniques to accurately determine the fatigue life
of metal components under complex cyclic loading. fe-safe combines
finite element analysis results for multiple loading conditions from
Abaqus with the cyclic load history to predict the life of the
component. Reading from & writing to the Abaqus results files allows
the users to view fatigue results in Abaqus/CAE or Abaqus/Viewer as
contour plots for damage, fatigue life and safety factors. Similar
interfaces are available for many other leading FEA product suites.

In addition to fe-safe, there are several complementary modules
available which expand the capabilities of fe-safe to account for
specific applications, such as composite materials, creep and 

This technology can (and to a degree, already has) benefit the analyst
in the quest for a complete, unified solution to engineering problems.
We’re all really excited to welcome our new colleagues and begin our
journey to provide an even better 3DEXPERIENCE with this exceptional
acquisition in the field of durability & fatigue  :-)

For example, something like test cases documented in  ??

Fatigue is difficult to "simulate", and not many people beleive sophisticated "virtual testing" can replace "real testing" --- and certainly not certification agencies.  It is true that in fatigue crack propagation, some certification agencies beleive softwares like NASGRO, for fatigue crack propagation.   So where we can find some documentation for this ABAQUS fatigue software?
