    Hi @wanghao Fatigue in MAPDL is an 'Archived' feature and it did not store fatigue life to the result file. The fatigue calculations are done in post processing. We can save the MAPDL commands to perform the fatigue calculation (FWRITE) and reuse the file on other analyses.

    Hi @Mike Rife
    Thanks for reply!
    How to find the MAPDL commands to perform the fatigue calculation? Is there any example for this?

    @wanghao See the Mechanical APDL Help -> Feature Archive. Just remember that this is an archived feature meaning it is really not meant to be used...and will probably be undocumented some day.
