The approaches to spectrum life prediction in components can be classified into two types, namely, history-based methods, using the life-fraction rule or other damage rules, and postservice evaluation methods. This article discusses the variables affecting the material crack growth rate behavior and those essential elements in making spectrum crack growth life prediction. It provides information on life assessment for bulk creep damage.
