Consolidate vast amounts of acquired load data
LMS TecWare helps test engineers efficiently validate gigabytes of raw data from mobile data acquisition campaigns. A multitude of measurements - containing any combination of strain, load, moment, displacement, acceleration, tacho, pressure, temperature, CAN, GPS and wheel force transducer data are consolidated, either interactively on a channel-by-channel basis, or fully automated through standardized processes.
Gain a precise understanding of loads
LMS TecWare focuses on monitoring and comparing essential durability related aspects to select representative loading scenarios. A core capability of LMS TecWare is its extensive range of dedicated durability-specific data interpretation methods. These methods are based on statistics, rainflow and frequency analysis and help engineers efficiently qualify and quantify the load data durability potential.
Analyze fatigue in-depth
LMS TecWare accurately estimates the fatigue life of a component, based on measured strain histories or individual tensors and cyclic material properties. It helps the user conduct a wide range of design sensitivity studies such as the variability of loading, materials, surface conditions and local geometry. As a result, you optimize the components’ fatigue performance.
Accelerate durability test scenarios
LMS TecWare removes non-damaging events from long duration measurements to accelerate durability tests or simulations and helps engineers test more variants in the same amount of time. An optimal compromise between reduced testing time and preserved damage potential is guaranteed.
Design customer-correlated durability test schedules
Mapping the real customer usage of your product to a condensed durability test scenario is not obvious. With LMS TecWare, any guesswork is eliminated by calculating, via an optimization procedure, the optimal mix of test track sections that match the target customer usage with respect to fatigue.
