I am using ANSYS AIM 18.1 for conducting fatigue analysis using the defined structural template of steel.
I have gotten the results below and am not able to convert fatigue life from cycles into days.
Please not I have completed my PhD defense and my committee members are requesting these info by tomorrow.

Are you doing a vibration based fatigue or a time-based fatigue? For the later if each cycle has certain time period, can't we just calculate it?

It looks like you have a cable wrapped around a pulley. What is your definition of a cycle?
One definition could be for a point on the cable to go round the pulley once. That means the cable goes from straight to wrapped to straight.
How many times a day does that happen?
An example would be if the one point went around the pulley one time each minute and the machine ran for 8 hours a day. That is a total of 8 x 60 = 480 times/day.
So if ANSYS calculates the minimum life is 2.85e5 cycles, just divide by 480 to get a minimum life of 593 days.
Hope that helps (I tried to call your phone but you didn't pick up).

Muhammad, Since this is a public forum. I've removed the address from your post for your own safety. I would recommend against doing so in the future as well.
