The aim of this paper is to provide a concise assessment of some multiaxial high-cycle fatigue criteria and to check their predictive capabilities against synchronous sinusoidal out-of-phase bending and torsion experimental results. This bending-torsion stress systems does not closely represent real load conditions undergone by a machine part. However, it is complex enough to differentiate the various fatigue criteria and to permit a first classification of the approaches examined, according to the accuracy of their predictions. A fatigue criterion recently formulated, with the help of the mesoscopic approach is also included in this comparative study.
