This article summarizes fatigue phenomena in metallic materials. It discusses fatigue under variable-amplitude (VA) loading, with emphasis on crack growth. The article presents the prediction models of crack initiation and crack growth under VA loading. It concludes with a discussion on the conditions associated with engineering applications of VA loading.
