* Introduction to fatigue
* Local stress-strain fatigue
* Materials data
* Signal analysis for fatigue
* Using stress-life data
* Stress concentrations, stress gradient and notch sensitivity
* Why biaxial fatigue is important
* Modern biaxial fatigue methods
* Fatigue analysis from finite element models
* Statistics & reliability
* Crack growth analysis
* Fatigue of welded joints, including recent ‘local’ approaches.
* Fatigue lives from the PSD
* Fatigue test & design
* Fatigue analysis in practice

Who should attend: Design and Test Engineers responsible for product durability in the ground vehicle, aerospace and manufacturing industries. No previous knowledge of fatigue is necessary.
