Abstract
The proposed development creates an analytical system for durability analysis, prediction, and optimization. The approach taken leverages several existing technologies available at M4 Engineering and across industry. Additional algorithm and software development is focused on addressing portions of the problem that have significant opportunity for advancing the current state of the art. These developments include streamlining of several analytical processes as well as a novel approach to include physics-based analysis significantly earlier in the design process. The proposed work will advance the Army interests by enabling increased reliability and reduced lifecycle cost of military ground vehicles.
