An analysis of the problems of creep-fracture and fatigue is presented, with the emphasis on generating criteria for the design of a high-temperature closed-cycle turbocompressor loop. Recommendations are made for specific design equations which can be used to predict the effects of factors such as stress concentrations, temperature, mean stress and cumulative damage on high- and low-cycle fatigue, thermal fatigue and creep-fracture. A summary of design equations is given. A detailed critique of the subject, which serves as the basis for these recommendations, is given. Author
