Fatigue check is implemented according to following standards: DIN 15018 (1984), DIN DVS 1608 (June 2010) and DIN DVS 1612 (August 2014), DNV-RP-C203 Fatigue (2016), EN13001 (2018), Eurocode 3 Fatigue (EN1993-1-9, 2005), FEM 1.001 (3rd, 1998), FKM – Analytical strength assessment (5th and 6th editions) based on Smith Correction and Palmgren-Miner S-N curves methods.
The fatigue damage method allows for different loading patterns and calculates fatigue life consumption for each cycle based on the stress variation and the number of load cycles
Plates with its dimensions are recognized automatically by Panel Finder. Stresses are converted automatically into plate direction in Plate Buckling check. Plates can be checked against buckling according to ABS 2004/2014, DNV 1995/RP-C201 2010 and Eurocode3 Plate Buckling (EN 1993-1-5, 2006) rules.
SDC Verifier implements the following standards for checking large (offshore) lattice structures: AISC/ANSI 360-10, AISC/ANSI 360-22, API RP-2A, ISO 19902, Norsok N004 and Eurocode3.
The overall section behaviour is determined by the lowest category of each cross section part (webs, flanges, etc.). It is calculated for each load case
SDC Verifier offers comprehensive support for bolt check calculations, incorporating three distinct bolt check standards to ensure a wide range of compatibility and flexibility in your structural engineering projects. These standards include:
Eurocode 3 (EN1993) Bolt Check: SDC Verifier is equipped to perform bolt checks in accordance with the Eurocode 3 standard (EN1993), ensuring compliance with European design codes for steel structures. This standard is widely recognized and used in Europe for assessing the safety and reliability of bolted connections.
AISC 360-10 Bolt Check: The software also includes support for the AISC 360-10 Bolt Check standard, which is based on the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) specification. This standard is essential for engineers and designers working on steel structures in the United States, as it helps ensure structural integrity and safety.
VDI 2230: In addition to the Eurocode and AISC standards, SDC Verifier offers compatibility with the VDI 2230 guideline. VDI 2230 is a German standard that provides guidelines for calculating the safety of bolted joints, offering a reliable method for engineers working on projects adhering to German engineering standards.
