What is S-Life Plastics?
S-Life Plastics is an easy-to-use software that conducts a short-term, long-term, and fatigue strength assessment based on finite element analysis (FEA) results for plastic components made out of unreinforced or reinforced thermoplastic materials.
In order to conduct a strength assessment S-Life Plastics only needs the local stress tensor, provided by the appropriate result file of the particular FE solver. Additionally, the user has to enter some basic information about the material and loading conditions, and with that S-Life Plastics provides the resulting static and cyclic utilization ratios as contour plots. For every individual node a comprehensive numerical report of the most important assessment variables can be requested for documentation purposes.
