An analysis is presented which permits the accurate prediction of component lifetimes after proof testing. The analysis applies to crack propagation controlled fracture but can be used as a conservative prediction when crack initiation is predominant. The analytical predictions are confirmed in a series of time-to-failure measurements. Author
