One of the most challenging tasks for an analyst is to develop load cases for their FEA model that match measured strain values. Typically, it will take weeks to develop the right load cases that match just one or two strain gauges at a single point in time.
True-Load makes that situation a thing of the past. True-Load will determine optimal gauge placement based on the FEA model. Once strains are collected at these optimal gauge locations, the strain data is read into True-Load to calculate load time histories that will guarantee matching the measured strain to within 2% at every point in time. When combined with True-QSE, interrogating any point in the model for strain, stress or displacement is easy and interactive. Typically it takes a few minutes to determine the strain gauge placement and a few minutes to back calculate the loading profiles.
