    Non-Linear fatigue

      is there something called Non-Linear fatigue analysis, if it is there how to quantify that? give me some examples can solidworks simulation handle it?
        • Non-Linear fatigue
          Are you asking about performing a non-linear fatigue study using SW simulation? If so, the current version (2009 premium) does not have a module to perform the non-linear fatigue study. The fatigue study module is only applicable for linear static studies. But you can perform a non-linear fatigue study using COSMOSM interface(GeoStar). You can mesh your solids and carry over the mesh file (*.geo) to GeoStar interfaace and perform a fatigue analysis.

          Hope this helps
