Fatigue calculations and damage calculations with complex loads
In large mechanisms and in mechanisms with long service-life, criteria like transportability, cost-price, dynamic loading and size-restrictions often lead to fatigue-critical designs. Huygens has developed extensive expertise in fatigue assessment.
Fatigue calculations can be done analytically for normalized situations. The figure shows an excerpt of a shaft-fatigue calculation in MathCAD, according to DIN 743.
