IMA Materialforschung und Anwendungstechnik GmbH is significantly involved in the development of the guideline. The actual 6th issue was elaborated and published 2012.
The FKM-Guideline contains a calculation algorithm with a consistent structure for all cases of application. The algorithm consists of procedures, equations, tables and graphs.
We train you to the FKM-Guideline on site or in our house. The training shall explain the methods and background information of the analytical strength assessment according to FKM-Guideline.
Our software is the solution for the construction process and component stress analysis. The software shows the guideline true strength assessment in accordance with FKM-Guideline issue 2012.
Engineers and constructors in several areas benefit of the theoretical knowledge and practical know-how of the methods and calculation algorithms:
We provide trainings about the calculation programme and the FKM guide line. Please contact us and arrange a meeting – either at our facilities or directly at your site.
