Header_Social_Media_Rifest_Toolbox_Englisch

Together with ihf Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH a team of engineers from IMA Dresden developed the WIAM® fatigue RIFEST-Toolbox. The toolbox consists of two different programs for the Static Strength assessment and the Fatigue Assesment (high and low cycle fatigue): The WIAM® fatigue RIFEST program was developed by IMA Dresden and maps the guideline-compliant strength assessment at assessment points for non-welded and welded components according to the FKM guideline linear. The second part of the toolbox is the AutoFENA NL Solo program. The program was developed by ihf Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH. It can be used to perform both the static strength assessment and the fatigue strength assessment. Via the graphical user interface, the user can define [...]

Header_Social_Media_Ostergruesse_Englisch

Whether real and fluffy or made of chocolate - most people imagine bunnies when thinking of Easter. It’s a lovely tradition to hide the chocolate bunnies in the garden so that the family, mostly children, go searching for them. And, of course, eat them. Interestingly enough, there are so many ways to break the hollow chocolate body into small pieces. But which one’s the best as the chocolate bunny isn’t so easily crushed: biting off the head at first, squeeze ears in first or placing it on its side and pressing down with the flat of your hand? At IMA Dresden, we don't deal with chocolate Easter bunnies - unless we eat them. But we are experts when it comes to testing the strength of materials and components – even most "delicate" materials. [...]
