Excellent Course for Beginning

Rated 5 out of 5

Introduction to Fatigue course from Fatec Academy was very helpful for me to deeply understand fundamental subjects about fatigue analysis. Some details in this course are really hard to find by own effort. Therefore, it is very beneficial to take this course for beginning fatigue studies.

Great fatigue course with focus on application of the theory

Rated 5 out of 5

The fatigue course and additional modules offer an extensive learning experience in applied fatigue analysis. There is a lot of instantly applicable knowledge available, and the theory of fatigue is explained very accessibly. To gain the full benefit of the course, a foundation of solid and structural mechanics should be present in the reader’s mind, however even without such a background, the important points and concepts can be understood.
Covering the fatigue life from initiation to macro-crack growth, the practical structural and design engineers needs are fully covered. It doesn’t cover mathematical derivations much, e.g. crack tip stress fields. This is not a problem though, they can be found in a lot of reference books and obviously not the aim of the course.
The additional modules give insight into multiaxial fatigue and additional material as testing and damage tolerance with a focus on the aeronautical side.
Personally, I found the didactical method, how concepts are brought across to the reader very well done, and especially enjoyed the multi-axial fatigue module.
Overall it is clear to see that a lot of thought and years of experience have contributed to the module content. The information is accessible and the link to practical applications is never far.
I would highly recommend the course for engineers new to or already working in mechanical fatigue and students at graduate level.
