Stochastic Modelling of Fatigue: Methodical Background

  • K. Sobczyk
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 334)


Fatigue of engineering materials is a complicated and intriguing phenomenon that takes place in components and structures subjected to time — varying external loadings and that manifests itself in the deterioration of the material’s ability to carry the intended loadings.
