Aims 

After having passed the course the student is able to:
- learn fatigue as a material failure
- learn different approaches to analyze fatigue strength of components for mechanical engineering
- learn how to design fatigue loaded structures for demanding application
- learn how to avoid fatigue failure

 
Contents 

Design principals to avoid fatigue failure of mechanical engineering components and
structures. Introduction to fatigue in micro and macro scale, deformation of structural
materials, stress concentrations and fracture mechanics. Design of structures
based on stress-life approach, strain-life approach and linear elastic fracture mechanics.
