Fatigue Design in Automotive Industry

  • A. Bignonnet
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 392)


The context of fatigue design in the automotive industry is presented. Emphasis is given to High Cycle Fatigue, taking into account the multiaxiahty of stresses. The fatigue assessment of components with surface treatments and of welded components is also discussed.
