A mechanical component can break due to repeated load cycling, even if these loads remain well below the component’s regular static strength. In a simplified fashion, a component’s fatigue life depends on the loads that it has to endure during its service life, as well as its fatigue strength to resist the formation of cracks. Since both of...

Fatigue life is a random variable. The reliability of a conservative fatigue life prediction for a component in the helicopter dynamic system thus needs to be substantiated. A standard analytical substantiation method uses averaged manoeuvre loads instead of seeing manoeuvre loads as a random variable whose distribution is estimated with limited...
