Watch our first part of a 7 part series.
Introduction to the theory of the fundamentals of durability and fatigue life design, considered in the context of functional performance engineering.
Via real-life examples of fatigue failure, the difference between durability and fatigue is explained, as well as the mechanisms behind crack initiation and propagation. The theory behind the S-N curve and rainflow counting further illustrates possible design strategies against fatigue.
