Fatigue Properties in Engineering
Fatigue properties are an integral part of materials comparison activities and offer information for structural life estimation in many engineering applications. This article presents three general approaches to fatigue design, with a discussion on their respective attributes. These include infinite-life criterion, finite-life criterion, and damage tolerant criterion. The article describes the individual property requirements of these approaches. It also presents selected examples of properties that reflect some detail of these approaches.
