A Statistical Analysis on the Fatigue Life Characteristics of Structural Materials
A new method of parameter determination in the fatigue residual strength degradation model is proposed. The new method and minimization technique are compared experimentally to account for the effect of tension-compression fatigue loading on structural materials. It is shown that the correlation between experimental results and the theoretical prediction of the fatigue life, fatigue life distribution obtained by the proposed method is very reasonable.
