Review of Contemporary Approaches to Fatigue Damage Analysis
A review of current methods for fatigue damage analysis employing smooth specimen materials data for predicting the service life of components and structures subjected to variable loading will be presented. It is written for the beginner in this area of fatigue damage analysis rather than for experienced practitioners. Special emphasis is placed on the detailed elements of the analysis, as well as the overall pattern for synthesizing these elements into a working computer-based program.
