Strength assessment of components according to FKM guideline

MDESIGN Knowledge Update: Seminar

Although the delivery of arithmetical proofs of strength is among an engineer’s most important tasks, in practice the FKM directive presents users with challenges time and again owing to its complex structures, the lack of clarity and the broad range of components.

The seminar gives you a practical understanding of the theoretical background and the calculation algorithms of the FKM directive. This enables you to realise the proof of strength - both with nominal stresses and with local stresses - in accordance with the directive.

Upcoming seminar dates

  • 09.05.2019 Frankfurt
  • 21.05.2019 Leipzig
  • 23.05.2019 Munich

Your benefits

  • Damage prevention: You learn how to realise an arithmetical proof of strength in full and confidently in accordance with the FKM directive in order to design reliable components and machines, and act early to prevent damage.
  • Progress: Update and expand your know-how in order to meet the increasing technical and economic requirements for safety-related machine elements perfectly.
  • Competitive edge: Enhance your methodological expertise. As a result, you develop innovative products more quickly and more successfully than the competition.
  • Reduce the liability risk: Bring your knowledge of the DIN 743 standard and the FKM directive bang up to date in order to be able to prove at any time that your products are designed in accordance with accepted engineering practices.

Furthermore learn the FKM directive method using practical example calculations. You can then use MDESIGN technology free of charge for your ongoing projects in order to be able to evaluate the local stresses on structures which you have determined. Carry out software-based FKM calculations in accordance with the local stress concept.
