North American FEMFAT Conference 2022


We warmly invite you to join the CATI and the FEMFAT team at the ​​​​​​​ North American FEMFAT Conference 2022 on October, 19th / 20th 2022.

You can expect an exciting program ranging from latest FEMFAT news (FEMFAT 2022a and 2022.1) and ongoing developments as well as user presentations.

Participate and learn more about the new features of the last release and the planned innovations in FEMFAT. Topics like new gradient method, automated material assignment for base material and WELD/SPOT nodes and much more will be presented.

You will also hear presentations from users applying the latest capabilities and FEMFAT techniques, ensuring increased reliability and robustness of their products.

General Information Fatigue Analysis
Fatigue analysis delivers the final assessment of component´s structural durability performance bringing together all system information generated by measurement, MBS and FEA. Because many influences interact during crack formation, accurate input from loads, material data and FE-models are decisive for quality of prediction.

FEMFAT is a universally applicable software program for the fatigue analysis of statically and/or dynamically loaded components and complete systems. Based on stresses from finite element analysis, FEMFAT delivers analysis results such as fatigue life or damage as well as safety factors.

Why attend?

  • Expand your technical know-how 
  • Listen to engineering experts sharing their specialist knowledge in diverse fields of simulation in vehicle development.
  • Engage in discussions and exchange insights.
  • Enlarge your network and build long-lasting business connections.


CALL FOR PAPER: This event is a platform of sharing expertise for like minded engineers. You have a topic to present? Please feel free to submit your paper and be a part of our event.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​PLEASE NOTE: The North American FEMFAT Conference is free of charge, but registration is required.
