AFGROW is a user-friendly 64-bit, object-oriented life prediction tool. Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics analysis methods form the foundation of the code, but a strain-life crack initiation capability is also included in the framework. AFGROW is designed to be a flexible analysis tool for Engineers who have a good understanding of the principles and methods used in the code.
