This add-on module is a supplement for the basic module Rolling Contacts, which can be supplemented with the add-on modules Cylindrical Gears, Bevel Gears and Cam Contacts. The Stress module calculates the triaxial stress state of uncoated and coated bodies for static and dynamic operating conditions. The calculated stresses serve as the basis for assessing material stress and possible material failure.

Module Highlights

  • consideration of uncoated and multilayer coated surfaces
  • calculation of the triaxial stress state and common equivalent stresses
  • output of all normal and tangential stresses for individual further processing (e.g. for lifetime models)
