SIMULIA fe-safe

SIMULIA fe-safe

fe-safe, originally developed by Safe Technology Ltd., and now part of the DS SIMULIA product portfolio is a powerful and easy-to-use fatigue postprocessor for all major FEA suites including Abaqus, ANSYS ,I-deas, Nastran (MSC,NX, NEi) and Pro/Mechanica. fe-safe uses proven techniques to accurately determine the fatigue life of metal components under complex cyclic loading.


With the fe-safe product suite as an integrated part of your design process, you have the ability to:

  • Increase the fatigue life of safety-critical components
  • Optimize designs to use less material
  • Reduce product recalls and warranty costs
  • Optimize and validate design and test programs
  • Improve correlation between test and analysis within a single user interface
  • Reduce prototype test times
  • Speed up analysis times, thereby reducing man-time hours
  • Increase confidence that your product designs pass their test schedules as "right first time"
  • Reduce reliance on physical testing
  • Analyze welded joint and non-welded areas in a single run and display results on the same contour plot, thereby speeding up the whole model analysis
  • Predict the fatigue life of elastomeric components alongside metal components
  • Analyze strain gauge data and service loading using an intuitive and user friendly GUI
  • Identify if fatigue damage is being caused by fatigue, creep fatigue or creep fatigue interactions
