The remaining fatigue life of riveted structures is a topic of considerable importance, particularly for owners of bridges. Improved methods for the estimation of the actual fatigue life of such structures are required in order to make their continued safe use possible while at the same time avoiding the expense of unnecessary repairs. To evaluate fatigue life expectancy of a structural detail, it is necessary to obtain an accurate estimate of the stress history. Two analytical models are… CONTINUE READING
