Annotation

This book is a summary of experimental and analytical techniques that are essential to students and practicing engineers for conducting mechanical component design and testing for durability. There is a serious need for engineers to have an overview on the entire methodology of durability testing and reliability to bridge the gap between fundamental fatigue research and its durability applications.

  • Covers the useful techniques for component load measurement and data acquisition, fatigue properties determination, fatigue analysis, and accelerated life test criteria development, and, most importantly, test plans for reliability demonstrations.
  • Written from a practical point of view, based on the authors' industrial and academic experience in automotive engineering design.
  • Extensive practical examples are used to illustrate the main concepts in all chapters.

Publisher Description

This book is a summary of experimental and analytical techniques that are essential to students and practicing engineers for conducting mechanical component design and testing for durability. There is a serious need for engineers to have an overview on the entire methodology of durability testing and reliability to bridge the gap between fundamental fatigue research and its durability applications.

Back Cover

Fatigue Testing and Analysis: Theory and Practice presents the latest, proven techniques for fatigue data acquisition, data analysis, and test planning and practice. More specifically, it covers the most comprehensive methods to capture the component load, to characterize the scatter of product fatigue resistance and loading, to perform the fatigue damage assessment of a product, and to develop an accelerated life test plan for reliability target demonstration. This book is most useful for test and design engineers in the ground vehicle industry.

Fatigue Testing Analysis and Design introduces the methods to account for variability of loads and statistical fatigue properties that are useful for further probabilistic fatigue analysis. The text incorporates and demonstrates approaches that account for randomness of loading and materials, and covers the applications and demonstrations of both linear and double-linear damage rules. The reader will benefit from summaries of load transducer designs and data acquisition techniques, applications of both linear and non-linear damage rules and methods, and techniques to determine the statistical fatigue properties for the nominal stress-life and the local strain-life methods.

Review

"If you have only one book on fatigue, this should be the one. This book is an excellent blend of the underlying science of fatigue and the application of this knowledge to the art of fatigue design and analysis. It will be useful to both testing and design engineers...This book is an excellent beginning for practicing engineers who wish to gain a better understanding of the various techniques used for fatigue assessment of structures and components. At the same time experts will find it a useful reference for many of the newer methods and techniques." - International Journal of Pressure Vessels and Piping
