Abstract

In recent years there has been much engineering effort channeled toward obtaining higher strength, lower weight and cost product designs. In pursuit of this goal some carefully designed and tested parts have catastrophically failed after a long history of repeated successful service, even though the load at the time of failure was no higher than the part had repeatedly carried previously. These mechanical failures are commonly classified as fatigue failures.
