Structure Fatigue Life and Reliability Analysis Based on Fatigue Crack Growth Data



The random formula on fatigue crack growth is deduced by the fatigue crack data and the improved Taguchi method, and the sample estimates of random variables are received by the least square method in the random formula. Fatigue fracture life and reliability of structure are analyzed by the random model. The result show the model is correct and practical, and get the same result with Monte Carlo simulation, moreover its calculation is very simple.
