Product Info
Fatigue calculation post-processing tool to plot the cycles to failure and accumulated damage according to section 5.5.3 in ASME VIII Div. 2



  • The fatigue calculation according to ASME 2013 Sec. VIII Div.2 Part 5. Chapter 5.5.3; Fatigue assessment –elastic stress analysis and equivalent stress can be done by hand, extracting stress results at nodes for each load case.
  • However, in addition to be a time-consuming task with risk of errors, the node location of the maximum damage cannot be known before the actual fatigue damage calculation.


  • The ASME Fatigue app can be used as an efficient post-processing tool to plot the number of cycles to failure, or accumulated damage according to ASME, for a single, or a combination of, load cases.
  • The fatigue curve data tables are implemented and the fatigue curve is directly built using the material properties of the selected bodies.
