Introduction to ANSYS nCode

Ansys nCode DesignLife works with Ansys Mechanical and Ansys LS-DYNA to reliably evaluate fatigue life. Using the results of finite element analysis (FEA) from Ansys Mechanical and Ansys LS-DYNA, it accumulates damage from repetitive loading to determine a product’s predicted life. You can quickly evaluate the effects of different materials and alternative geometries for new designs, and then optimize them for the product’s expected usage — long before the first prototype is built or expensive testing takes place.

With a new interface on the Ansys Workbench, you can enjoy a customized workflow that integrates with other products while staying within a single interface. You also have the flexibility to access your nCode user interface directly from Ansys Workbench. The ease-of-use makes the power of nCode DesignLife even easier to realize.

In the video below, you will learn how to run a fatigue analysis in both the Ansys Workbench and nCode user interfaces.
