This book is a summary of experimental and analytical techniques that are essential to students and practicing engineers for conducting mechanical component design and testing for durability. There is a serious need for engineers to have an overview on the entire methodology of durability testing and reliability to bridge the gap between fundamental fatigue research and its durability applications.
-Covers the useful techniques for component load measurement and data acquisition, fatigue properties determination, fatigue analysis, and accelerated life test criteria development, and, most importantly, test plans for reliability demonstrations.
-Written from a practical point of view, based on the authors' industrial and academic experience in automotive engineering design.
-Extensive practical examples are used to illustrate the main concepts in all chapters.

Industry Reviews

"If you have only one book on fatigue, this should be the one. This book is an excellent blend of the underlying science of fatigue and the application of this knowledge to the art of fatigue design and analysis. It will be useful to both testing and design engineers...This book is an excellent beginning for practicing engineers who wish to gain a better understanding of the various techniques used for fatigue assessment of structures and components. At the same time experts will find it a useful reference for many of the newer methods and techniques." - International Journal of Pressure Vessels and Piping
