Simcenter durability testing solution guide

Understanding road load data to optimize strength and fatigue

Increasing product durability is a challenge you face when combined with the pressure to make products lighter to be more energy efficient. Reducing mass and material often lead to weaker, less durable designs, which can lead to customer dissatisfaction. Balancing the tradeoffs between durability and energy efficiency can be tricky, but you don’t necessarily need to sacrifice durability. How can you understand the durability performance of multiple design variants under increasingly shortening development cycles?
