North America

Free Sessions for Reliability and Durability

Monday, June 12, 2017 - 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Chicago - North Shore Conference Center - Chicago, Illinois

On Monday prior to the start of the ARS North America, two leading brands for engineering software and services — ReliaSoft and nCode — will offer complimentary one-day sessions that present key analysis tools in reliability engineering, product durability and fatigue. Here’s your chance to learn more about tools and solutions from a perspective that may be new to you.

These free sessions are open to the public (ARS registration is not required). They will run concurrently from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

You can choose to attend either session, but seating is limited, so you must reserve your spot in advance.


Analysis Tools and Solutions
for Reliability Engineers

  Analysis Tools for Understanding
Product Fatigue & Durability

HBM nCode
ReliaSoft’s Synthesis Platform offers a powerful set of analysis tools that can be applied throughout all stages of product development, manufacturing and operations to improve reliability, availability and safety.

This session uses practical case studies to demonstrate some of the most effective applications in a variety of different domains.

  • Overview of the Synthesis Platform and new features
  • Case studies for Design and Manufacturing
  • Case studies for Risk and Safety
  • Case studies for Operations and Maintenance
This session offers a technical introduction to the benefits of performing fatigue and durability analysis. The focus will be placed on the practical engineering considerations for designing durable products and how nCode technology can help streamline your process.

  • The physics of fatigue and product design
  • Introduction to fatigue:
    • SN (nominal stress) fatigue models
    • EN (local strain) fatigue models
    • Fatigue cycle-counting models
    • Influence of secondary and tertiary effects on fatigue-life prediction
  • Product validation and verification through accelerated durability testing
  • CAE-based fatigue-life analysis of products
