Does Ansys or only Ansys nCode use the critical plane approach?

      Hello,

      I'd like to have some more information about the software itself. I want to estimate the fatigue life (strain based) with multiaxial stresses using a critical plane approach.

      Does Ansys itself has the approach implemented or only Ansys nCode? Which specific critical plane approach is implemented and can the approach be modified? A manual of the theory would be very helpful.

      Thank you for your help!

      Critical plane approach for stress combinations is available in nCode. Here are some snapshots from nCode documenation. I hope this helps.

      thank you very much for your answer, this was really helpful.
      Do you know if you can add user defined functions or approaches in ANSYS nCode?
