The strength assessment performed by the software LIMIT incorporates a static and fatigue module to evaluate your structure. Base material as well as weld analysis can be accomplished using the commercial finite element code CATIA (Dassault Systèmes®).
Required import files for LIMIT
To allow a fatigue assessment of your structure using Catia, you have to have the .dat to access the finite element model and the .bat with all relevant result data.
Import of geometry
- Import of geometry via text files in Nastran style:
- Using LIMIT-GUI / JobManager
Supported Catia Versions in Release Package
