Durability Analysis | Application Of Durability Analysis In Automotive, Aerospace and Wind Turbines

Durability Analysis

Durability analysis involves defect characterization, crack initiation and propagation mechanisms, and long term performance prediction. Durability analysis enables them to identify such points at a very early stage. Such tests can analysis and improve the structural and cyclic strength of a design.
