IMA Dresden – the partner you can contact when it comes to strength assessment and strength analysis. Determine this by calculation with the WIAM®fatigue RIFEST Software according to the FKM-Guideline.
The FKM-Guideline “Analytical strength assessment for components” has been published by the Forschungskuratorium Maschinenbau e.V. (FKM). The first issue of FKM-Guideline was published in 1994. 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.
As an independent and reliable development and testing centre for rail vehicles, IMA Dresden support manufacturers, suppliers and transport operators.
IMA Dresden can comment on the quality of your product with non-destructive testing (NDT), either in its own laboratories or on site on your premises.
Use the competence of the IMA Dresden for your measurement campaigns. We carry out stress measurements and test drives for railway applications.
