STP588: Chapter 3—Planning S-N and Response Tests

    Pages: 15    Published: Jan 1975


    Abstract

    The key step in planning any fatigue test, and especially those involving only a few specimens, is to define clearly before testing the primary test objective. If the test data will be regarded as preliminary or exploratory, as is common in the generation of much research data, then test planning is markedly different than when the tests are expected to generate reliable life data.
