Metal fatigue is a major cause for failure of mechanical and structural components. We review the fracture mechanics of fatigue and Paris-Erdogan law for the mean behavior. After a consideration of experimental data reported by Virkler et al. (1979), we propose a continuous semimarkov process to model crack growth. The model accounts for the material randomness and sees crack as a motion in a random field.
