The SIGMA aircraft design company is a knowledge-based company with more than 10 years expriences as an unique private aircraft design beuraue, in Iran. SIGMA have excelent expriences on the entire aircraft design from blank sheet to prototyping and flight tests. Furthermore, design and advanced analysis of arial structure and mechanical systems of aircraft are our skill and strength points. It has been performed, more than 25 conventional, national, demonstrative and innovative projects by our team.

FLAi is a comprehensive graphical developed software by cooperation of SIGMA fatigue life team with Amirkabir University of Technology (AUT). The purpose of FLAi software design is to calculate the component’s life of the structures under fatigue spectrum loading with focus on aircraft structures. Three independent environments are included in this software as below.

Software environments:

    •Life estimation of crack-free components by semi-analytical method
    •Life estimation of cracked panels by semi-analytical method
    •Life estimation of thin panels by FE method

Software capability

    Semi-Analytical Package:
        •Fatigue life based on S-N curve analysis
