Application of Rubber Fatigue Analysis with Endurica Software

For many companies, validating the service life for an elastomeric product is the most time-consuming and expensive stage of the product development process. The physical testing requires investment in prototypes that will be destroyed and lengthy trials that execute on expensive equipment. This course shows how Endurica's software can be applied to virtually evaluate fatigue performance and solve design issues at the concept stage. After this two-day course, you will be ready to use the software to diagnose and solve fatigue issues.

Application of Rubber Fatigue Analysis with Endurica Software


  • Rubber product failure - what is at stake? 
  • Overview of software capabilities and workflows 
  • Setting up the stress-strain model 
  • Using material models for fatigue - fully relaxing 
  • Using material models for fatigue - nonrelaxing and strain crystallization 
  • Industry Applications: bushing under a 2-channel road load signal, exhaust mount, prosthetic joint
  • Calibrating crack precursor size 
  • FEA for life prediction 
  • Hands-on: sheet with a hole example 
  • Dealing with Multiaxial loading in fatigue analysis 
  • Hands-on: Diabolo 
  • Dealing with Variable amplitude loading in fatigue analysis

The key course for understanding and wielding the power of Endurica is now available virtually! Our live, online version of the Application of Rubber Fatigue Analysis with Endurica Software features live lectures and live exercises focused on Endurica’s workflow and software solutions. This course is a LIVE training event and a link to the presentation of each class will be made available to registrants for their reference/review. These links will be active for seven days after the class date so attendees will have time to make up classes they may not be able to attend live. This course will NOT be distributed or broadcast beyond this time period.  

Dr. Will Mars is an international authority on damage mechanics in elastomers. He brings two decades of experience developing product testing and simulation methods in the rubber industry. He is the editor of Rubber Chemistry & Technology.

Endurica LLC reserves the right to cancel a scheduled training course if the minimum class size is not met. In the event of a cancellation, Endurica LLC will make every attempt to notify registered participants within five working days. Payment made for a canceled course will be refunded in full or applied to another scheduled training course.

Participant cancellations must be received at least 10 working days in advance. Registrations canceled by participants less than 10 working days before the training course begins are subject to a 50% cancellation charge. For cancellations occurring on the first day of a scheduled training course, and for "no shows," the full tuition fee is non-refundable.
