Abstract:

The report presents a detailed description of a computer program to calculate cumulative damage of notched structural members subjected to arbitrary spectra. The Sequence Accountable Fatigue Analysis computer program develops its sequence sensitivity by tracking residual stresses local to a notch throughout the spectrum of loads. Residual stress relaxation analysis is included to increase the generality of the results. An example spectrum and resulting cumulative damage analysis are illustrated.
