# OS-SL-T: 1020 Fatigue Analysis of a Universal Joint

This tutorial demonstrates the creation of finite elements on a given CAD geometry of a universal joint.

The application of boundary conditions and a finite element analysis of the problem is explained. Post-processing tools are used to determine the fatigue life of the joint due to static loading.
