Introduction to Metal Fatigue
Concepts and Engineering Approaches
Keywords:Fatigue, Machine design, Manufacturing, Mechanics of materials, Structural mechanics
This report contains a compendium written for a fatigue course at Aarhus University during 2016-2018. It introduces the basic concepts governing fatigue strength of metals and presents associated engineering approaches needed for practical application. Both machined components and welded (steel) structures are covered and similarities and differences are discussed.
