How does elevated temperature service
reduce durability? What is the cause of failure - creep, fatigue, or
creep-fatigue interaction? fe-safe/TURBOlife has the answers.
fe-safe/TURBOlife is a powerful, unique, and
comprehensive suite of creep-fatigue analysis software. The creep-fatigue
algorithms in fe-safe/TURBOlife have been successfully applied to nuclear power
plant components, power station boilers, gas turbine blades, and steam turbine
components. fe-safe/TURBOlife is used increasingly in the powertrain industry
where creep and creep-fatigue interaction is prevalent in automotive exhaust
components and turbocharger impellers.
- Considers complex and interacting
damage mechanisms induced by creep and fatigue conditions
- Identifies whether the damage is
caused predominantly by fatigue, creep or creep-fatigue interaction
- Allows for damage computations using
ductility exhaustion with creep-fatigue interaction or strain range
