A book aimed at researchers, practitioners, and educators in civil, mechanical, aeronautical, and space engineering. For many years, fatigue has been a significant and difficult problem for engineers, especially for those who design structures such as aircraft, bridges, pressure vessels, and cranes. Fatigue of engineering materials is commonly regarded as an important deterioration process and a principal mode of failure for various structural and mechanical systems. The objective of this book is to present a unified approach to stochastic modelling of the fatigue phenomenon, especially the fatigue crack growth process. The main approaches to construction of these stochastic models are presented in an attempt to show their methodological consistency and potential usefulness in engineering practice. The analyses contained in this monograph should also inspire the development of new approaches for designing and performing fatigue experiments.
