LMS Test.Lab Mission Synthesis MRS and FDS computing




I have problems in LMS Test.Lab Mission Synthesis MRS/FDS computing.

How is the Stress/Displacement K factor defined? The software does not accept larger values than 1E10.

We have defined in FEM the K factor so, that we have given a displacement at the same point and direction where vibration measurements are carried out and FEM computes the corresponding stress (MPa) in specified point.


Are the other parameters Woehler exponent b and Woehler constant A somehow connected together, because the software also sometimes asks to change these values. 

In my computing i have used values  A = 1.574E9 and b = 13.

The “GUI part” of Mission Synthesis seems to impose that the values have to be below 1E10. This is not just for the K, also for the other values.


A workaround for this is that in fact only the ratio K/A is important when calculating damage. So for a K value > 1E10, instead adjust the A value so that the ratio K/A gets the proper value.


In formulas:

  • K is the proportionality constant between stress and displacement:


  • A is related to the intercept of the Wohler (S/N) curve, which we define as:


  •  In FDS damage calculations you will always see a factor (K/A)^B, e.g.
