A new modified octahedral shear stress failure theory for high-cycle fatigue has been developed. This theory considers rotating principal stress axes and nonsynchronous stresses. This theory was then compared to the commonly used octahedral shear stress theory using data from the literature. The new theory was found to be significantly better in predicting failures.
