Effect of Load Spectrum Variables on Fatigue Crack Initiation and Propagation

Editor(s): D. E. Tonini, J. M. Gaidis

Documents the significance of load spectra variation on structural life as measured by crack initiation and crack growth and presents an excellent service spectrum fatigue technology. Experts cover a wide variety of subjects from various engineering fields, such as load spectra representative of aircraft structures, gas turbines, and windmill structures along with analytical and experimental fatigue and fracture results and the effects of spectrum editing, time dependent changes in material characteristics, compression loads and gust alleviation.
