Abstract This paper presents several efficient statistical inference techniques to calibrate the equivalent initial flaw size (EIFS) of fatigue cracks for mechanical components with complicated geometry and multi-axial, variable amplitude loading. Finite element analysis is used to address the complicated geometry and calculate the stress intensity factors. Multi-modal stress intensity factors due to multi-axial loading are combined to calculate an equivalent stress intensity factor using a… CONTINUE READING
