Improved Structural Lifing Assessment Using BEASY’s Fatigue Crack Growth Modeling Technology 

 
There is a need for high fidelity fracture mechanics models based on actual structural geometry and realistic loading scenarios. We will discuss the benefits of advanced 3D computational fracture modeling for fatigue crack growth analysis. We will demonstrate how successful damage tolerant design assessment is closely connected to the determination of accurate stress intensity factor (SIF) solutions and the capture of realistic 3D crack shape evolution.

New Corrosion Manager Software

BEASY Corrosion Manager enables engineers to quickly assess the risk to components and structures of galvanic corrosion, and to evaluate the effectiveness of surface protection systems. The modelling technology can be applied to aerospace structures and to automotive/ vehicular structures.
 
Take a look at our NEW BEASY Corrosion Manager Video!

Streamlined Workflows – the new BEASY Model Editor tool provides a powerful, and speedy, capability to create and then solve variants of a model (eg as part of parameter studies)
 
New Capabilities – enhancements include the ability to take account of resistance of a coating, combined with the effects of coating damage; and to include both parts of a structure exposed to deeper electrolyte and parts exposed to thin film conditions
 

New Polarisation Data Manager Polcurvex

BEASY POLCURVEX provides a database of the polarisation properties of materials which can be used in combination with the BEASY Corrosion Manager. 
It can also be used to provide a more accurate, laboratory validated, method to predict corrosion rates based on the identification of crossing points of material polarization curves. The product supports new requirements set out in MIL-STD-889C (Standard Practice for design with Dissimilar Metals – Appendix B)
 
PolCurveX includes a GUI which makes it easy to incorporate, and exploit, additional polarisation material (eg project specific data; developments of new finishes etc)

AA&S Conference


In April (20th-23rd), BEASY was due to be exhibiting at the Aircraft & Sustainability Conference, presenting our fracture mechanics & corrosion risk assessment simulation software and services for aerospace structures.

Unfortunately the conference has been postponed but please find below a preview of the BEASY presentation.

Combining Galvanic and Mechanical Stress Solutions Using a Risk Mapping Approach to Improve Corrosion Related Damage Assessment
Thomas Curtin, Robert Adey, Sharon Mellings
 
Tear-down inspections of aircraft indicate that most structural failures initiate at corrosion features - nearly 80% of corrosion damage sites identified to have initiated cracks. Therefore a systematic approach is needed for galvanic management of airframes.
 

Fracture Assessment

For fracture assessment cases where parameter studies are required BEASY's Fracture Assessment Tool automates the process of investigating multiple crack locations and the impact of multiple crack sizes.
For example manufacturers can assess allowable crack like defect sizes.
 

In April (20th - 23rd), BEASY will be exhibiting at the Aircraft Airworthiness & Sustainability Conference where we will be presenting our fracture mechanics & corrosion risk assessment simulation software and services for aerospace structures.

BEASY will also be attending the NACE Conference (15th - 19th March), at which we will be presenting the following paper, addressing research work into the corrosion risk for structures and improvement to material degradation prediction using a fracture mechanics framework :

Using a Computational Galvanic Model in a Fracture Mechanics Framework to Improve Material Degradation Prediction 
By Thomas Curtin, Robert Adey, Andres Peratta, John Baynham

Discover how the output from a galvanic simulation model is used to determine the spatial distribution of corrosion damage; providing a guide for the location of discrete corrosion damage features that are analysed using stress fields from structural models and crack growth simulations

NEW PRODUCTS & SERVICES TO BE PRESENTED AT AA&S 2019

BEASY Model Cutting Tool

The BEASY model cutting tool is an "add on" feature to further simplify the creation of BEASY fracture and crack growth simulation models from FEM models such as NASTRAN, ABAQUS, ANSYS, PATRAN etc

 

 
BEASY Fracture Assessment Tool

BEASY Fracture Assessment Tool (BEASY FASST) can be used to quickly assess the impact of a crack on the structural integrity of a structure. The tool can be used with FEM or BEASY models to predict how stress the intensity factor (SIF) varies with crack size for a crack located at any position on the model. This can be used as a fast assessment tool before a full scale simulation is performed.


BEASY POLCURVEX

BEASY POLCURVEX software is used by design engineers to quickly assess the corrosion risk of material combinations exposed to aqueous environments.

To obtain further information, please contact us


BEASY Polarisation & Corrosion Rate Prediction

BEASY POLCURVEX software is used by design engineers to quickly assess the corrosion risk of material combinations exposed to aqueous environments. Galvanic corrosion is one of the primary, and most costly, corrosion mechanisms observed when different metals and finishes are coupled. BEASY POLCURVEX provides a more accurate, laboratory validated, method to predict corrosion rates based on the identification of crossing points for material polarization curves.
Galvanic corrosion is commonly assessed by comparing differences in metal potential (e.g. galvanic series in seawater table) with higher corrosion risk being associated with larger differences in metal potential. However recent research results obtained during development of the revised military standard, MIL-STD-889C suggests that potential differences do not fully account for the corrosion kinetics and can lead to wrong material compatibility decisions.
Given the high cost of corrosion maintenance many companies are searching for corrosion modeling tools to support the paradigm shift from “Find & Fix” to “Predict & Prevent/Manage”. The BEASY POLCURVEX software provides critical information to designers, focused on metal compatibility and coating performance of new designs and retrofits and maintenance engineers concerned with scheduling inspections to look for corrosion.
