Cycle Counting in Fatigue Analysis - Benchmark

Application ID: 14519

A benchmark model of the Rainflow counting algorithm compares results between ASTM and COMSOL fatigue module using a flat tensile test specimen. An extension is made for the cumulative damage calculation following the Palmgren-Miner model and results are compared with analytical expressions.

This model is included as an example in the following products:
