    Abstract

    This paper describes testing methods and solutions to problems that are faced in laboratory tests for simulation of realistic service conditions. The methods include fatigue crack growth tests in air and aqueous environments under constant amplitude and spectrum loading. Structural testing is also briefly discussed.
