Invitation to WCFA2018 - FKM Guideline Training

Dear iMechanicians,

I would like to invite you to the prepared 8th volume of the Workshop on Computational Fatigue Analysis series. The 2018 volume is dedicated to the FKM-Guideline on Strength Assessment, which covers both static and fatigue analysis of common industrial components. The key lecturer this time is Dr Roland Rennert from IMA Dresden, one of the co-authors of its last 6th revised version released in 2012.

Dear iMechanicians,

I would like to invite you to the Workshop on Computational Fatigue Analysis 2013 and 5th PragTic Users Meeting held in Hotel Rytirsko in October 21-23, 2013. The workshop is located in the central part of the Czech Republic, less than 1 km away from the D1 highway. It consists of a series of educative lectures presented by invited speakers. The preliminary information on the lectures as well as other details can be found at the conference website (in the right bottom part of the PragTic website
Thank you for considering your participation.

Elasto-Plastic Analysis of metal component with Cyclic Loading



I am pursuing my master's in Mech. Engg. and working on Abaqus for FEA of components. In one of the analysis, 

I am required to apply cyclic loading on the component to determine the Stresses at the edges. Its a compression

cyclic loading with kinematic hardening taken into account. From the documentation for ABAQUS 6.9.1, I found that

in order to apply kinematic hardening in metals, one must take it as Combined (Isotropic + Kinematic) Hardening.


The two concerns I have about this analysis are:

fatigue analysis


Is it necessary to carryout the linear static analysis first before doing the fatigue analysis.

If the stress exceeds the UTS , still can we caryyout the fatigue analysis.
