    Abstract

    Typical characteristics of various types of service loading are presented as they were discussed during the establishment of standardized test load sequences. Counting methods are reviewed and a simple and powerful algorithm is given to perform rainflow counting and to store the counting results afterwards. Synthesis procedures are discussed that generate rainflow consistent load sequences from matrix-based counting results.

    Keywords:

    fatigue load spectra, loading standards, counting methods, rainflow analysis, Markov matrix, rainflow synthesis, fatigue (materials), testing
