Description: This lecture outlines modern fatigue design procedures and standards, the respective background information; it introduces fatigue design by testing; it presents fatigue data analysis and evaluation; it covers safety and reliability issues in aluminium design. This material has been utilized together with further definitions for classification of structural details to provide a proposal supported by the European Aluminium Association as a National Application Document, which may also be considered for introduction into the actual standard when this will be converted from an ENV to an EN.
Keywords: design • fatigue • data analysis • design line • safety • reliability • partial safety factors • fatigue loading • fatigue strength • safety index • aluminium data bank • AlDaBa • damage tolerant design • ENV 1999-2 • life prediction procedure • sequence effects • strain-life approach
