Hottinger Baldwin Messtechnik GmbH (HBM): HBM nCode Software Certified by GL Renewables Certification

First structural integrity software certified for fatigue design of wind turbine structures

nCode DesignLife™ certification by GL Renewables CertificationnCode DesignLife™ certification by GL Renewables Certification
Darmstadt, 21.06.2012. As a leading brand of durability, test and analysis products nCode, since 2008 part of HBM received for its software for CAE fatigue analysis, nCode DesignLife™ certification by GL Renewables Certification (GL RC). The picture shows the Hand-over of certificate on the occasion of EWEA annual event in Copenhagen (Andreas Schroeter, Managing Director GL RC; Mike Woebbeking, Vice President GL RC; Robert Cawte, Principal Applications Engineer HBM; Dr André Schaefer, Product and Application Manager Wind Energy HBM (f.l.t.r.)).

nCode DesignLife is the first software for structural integrity to be GL RC certified for the design of cast and forged structural machinery components in wind turbines.

nCode DesignLife is a powerful, off-the-shelf CAE-based fatigue tool, optimized for today’s large model sizes and realistic loading schedules. Its advanced fatigue solver enables wind turbine manufacturers to identify when and where failure could occur and design using complete loading duty cycles representing the full 20 year loading events experienced in service.

DesignLife’s graphical, process-oriented interface provides a well-proven basis for determining fatigue and structural integrity throughout the components’ life.GL RC’s certification ensures a product will meet structural integrity requirements in accordance with the latest and applicable standards and guidelines. This includes fatigue analysis under complex real world loading conditions specified in GL RC’s guidelines or IEC 61400-1 international standard.

For nCode DesignLife, this certification assures customers that their component designs, such as wind turbine hubs and main shafts, can be analyzed in conformity with GL Renewables Certification’s Guideline for the Certification of Wind Turbines.

This is a further example how technologies of HBM help the customer to understand
product performance, accelerate product development and improve design.
