BAMpF® version 8.x enables fatigue crack growth analysis of parts with non-standard geometry, loading, and residual stress conditions through the implementation of multipoint fracture mechanics (MPFM). This user-friendly software environment provides structural analysts and engineers a tool to accurately and efficiently complete challenging fatigue crack growth problems.

Some of the key features and capabilities of BAMpF® include:

  • Natural fatigue crack shape progression
  • Fully 3D analysis
  • Complex loading
  • Multi-crack interactions and link-up
  • Residual stress integration

With this certification, version 8.x of BAMpF® becomes certified in accordance with AFI 17-101 for use on standard desktop systems connected to the AF Network and AF SIPRNet, including placement on the AF Evaluated Products List (AF EPL).
