A theoretical analysis of uniaxial cumulative fatigue damage is presented together with a large number of experimental results on unnotched specimens of A-201 and A-517 steels. The theory developed permits the prediction of fatigue curves for stress-controlled conditions with zero or positive mean stress as well as the evaluation of the damage accumulated during a fatigue test and hence the prediction of the remaining life of a specimen. Theory is in good agreement with the experimental results as well as with published data on other materials. The development may be extended to other types of tests such as strain-controlled or random loading conditions.
