Fatigue Result Options PropertyManager

The Result Options PropertyManager allows you to set options for the results of fatigue studies.

Fatigue Calculations

Requests damage calculations at all nodes or boundary nodes.

  Whole model Calculates damage at all locations (nodes) of the model. In an assembly, cracks can occur inside the model at the interface of two parts with different materials. In most other cases, cracks occur at the model boundary.
  Surface only Calculates damage at boundary nodes only. Using this option saves time since less calculations are needed. The savings are substantial for large problems with multiple variable amplitude fatigue loading.

Matrix Chart Locations

Sets the locations (vertices and reference points) at which you can plot the Rainflow matrix chart.
