All fatigue test systems, regardless of complexity, consist of the same basic elements. In simple systems, these elements are extremely rudimentary. On the other hand, sophisticated systems require highly complex elements. A test system loads the specimen through the load train, commands and programs the test through controls, monitors the test through sensors, and communicates with the investigator by means of read-out devices. The essential features of these elements are described in this chapter.
