Common Mistakes made in Fatigue Analysis
Fatigue life prediction is a common task for engineers. How do we make sure that we are doing the right thing? There are many codes and FE tools available for metal fatigue analysis. Are those tools doing it right?
We have compiled an ebook with an overview of common mistakes made in metal fatigue analysis.
Guidelines for Fatigue Life Analysis
In this book, guidelines are given for fatigue life estimations and analysis. A known quote from Arthur Schopenhauer is: “Wo das Rechnen anfängt, hört das Wissen auf”. One may translate this to: “Where calculating starts, understanding ends”.
The objective of this book is to give the reader background information and knowledge on fatigue analysis methods (i.e. understanding the calculation). It is therefore neither a text book nor a recipe book, but the missing link in-between.
