The fatigue behaviour of materials is usually synthesised in terms of stress-life (S-N) curve or in terms of strain-life (e-N) curve, the latter being described by the so-called Manson-Coffin equation. It is known that the assumption of equality of the plastic and elastic components between the Manson-Coffin and the stabilised stress-strain curves leads to the so-called compatibility conditions which connect the equations theoretically. The material constants of the Manson-Coffin and of the stabilised stress-strain curve are commonly determined by best fitting separately the experimental data obtained from strain-controlled fatigue tests. As a consequence the compatibility conditions may not be fulfilled. In this paper a method for fatigue data analysis that ensures the compatibility conditions is proposed and validated against experimental data.
