    Fatigue SN Curve?

    K. Bhoopathy

      Why am I not able to see the Fatigue SN Curves tab in the Material definition dialog box? While doing a Fatigue analysis.

              Dear  Ryan Werner,

               

              Thank You.

               

              I got a message like this..

               

              I follow the procedure of -: Add event - Get curve - Get Curve - select the file - ok.

               

              what is the procedure to open?

               

              Kindly help me in this regard.

                  After you add your event and link it to a previous study the list of bodies should appear in your tree on the left.  You then right click on the bodies and Apply the Fatigue Data (first picture).  Click on File and it should bring up your curve database (second picture).  You will notice at the top that I two databases to choose from.  I think in your picture you are in the bottom one.  You want to choose the top one instead, it will give you more SN Curves to choose from.  Once you choose one it will ask you to save the file someplace, just hit cancel, it will still select this curve data.  Once the curve data is loaded you just have to run the analysis.
