HiFIT (High Frequency Impact Treatment)

The trade name HiFIT stands for an integrated concept with

  • numerical analysing tools,
  • tools for the post welding treatment and
  • consulting 

for an efficient increase of the fatigue resistance of existing and new welded structures. The efficiency of this post welding treatment is proven by qualitative and quantitative analyses within the research project REFRESH by extensive fatigue tests at the TU Braunschweig and the university of Karlsruhe. Effects limiting the fatigue strength will be dismantled by local plastic deformations, deburring geometrical chamfers and injecting compressive residual stress. Experimental series show the highly increased fatigue strength and life time especially for high cycle fatigue.
