Failure investigations are often complicated by several factors including the complexity of the structure, unknown initial design, material history, and incomplete operation and maintenance records. BEASY can provide powerful 3D fracture simulations to help evaluate potential failure scenarios. Although hand calculations are useful at the beginning of a forensic failure analysis sophisticated 3D computer models are often required to determine the root cause of a failure.

BEASY is the ideal tool to investigate what-if-type fracture and damage scenarios.Once the computer model is created it is very easy to simulate the
behavior of cracks in critical structural components and determine their impact
on the failure. BEASY's fracture simulation tools can be used to determine if a crack would grow under the given design load or determine the growth path of the crack. This information can be used along with NDI data and fractography to determine the likely cause of failure.
