Abstract

Fatigue life prediction for components subjected to random loading situations involves initially evaluating the loading sequence at a critical area of the component and then analysing the load sequence to predict the fatigue life. This work has covered the following areas:

- Development of a method for generating a cyclic stress-strain curve from a single test using random strains;
- Investigation into the effect of the preceding sequence of cyclic strains on subsequent cyclic behaviour, in particular the stress-strain response.
