Let’s Learn Together: Durability and Mechanics Engineer Role

April 6, 2022 Katie Corey

This post is a continuation in a series about simulation on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and some of the roles you can find there. This week we are focusing on the Durability and Mechanics Engineer Role and how it enables design engineers to perform structural integrity assessment of any product for strength and durability scenarios early during the design process.


Overview

SIMULIA Durability and Mechanics Engineer enables design engineers to perform structural integrity assessment of any type of product for strength and durability scenarios early during the design process and intuitively guide decisions. It offers powerful and intuitive tools needed to perform sophisticated multistep structural simulations, powered by market leader Abaqus technology, as well as fatigue simulation to predict accurate fatigue lives.
