Abstract : Experimental observations relating to the fatigue process and theories of fatigue are briefly reviewed. Short-time fatigue testing methods are systematically reviewed and critically discussed. The classification of the methods is based on the relationship of fatigue properties to static properties, to stress-strain characteristics under reversed stress, and to other physical properties. Other methods discussed involve assumptions regarding the shape of the S-N curve. Also tests utilizing special loading conditions are reviewed. Advantages and applicability of the different methods are discussed.
