Advanced thermo-mechanical fatigue analysis tools (T-fat)
The multiaxial, mechanism-based model for TMF life prediction has been implemented into the Thermo-mechanical Fatigue Analysis Tool, T-fat. It works as post-processor for structural FEA results and reads results from the .odb or .RST files. The software comes with a post-processor that allows for fast and efficient results viewing and report generation including automatic identification of hot spots. We are currently working on implementation of the fatigue-creep-oxidation model of Sehitolgu as well.
