Hermes Penton Science, 2002. — 352 pages. — ISBN: 1903996066.

Having established the relationships which provide the response of a linear system with one degree of freedom to a random vibration, Volume 4 is devoted to the calculation of damage fatigue. It presents the hypotheses adopted to describe the behaviour of a material subjected to fatigue, the laws of damage accumulation, together with the methods for counting the peaks of the response, used to establish a histogram when it is impossible to use the probability density of the peaks obtained with a Gaussian signal. The expressions of mean damage and of its standard deviation are established. A few cases are then examined using other hypotheses (mean not equal to zero, taking account of the fatigue limit, non linear accumulation law, etc.).

Fatigue damage to a system with one-degree-of-freedom is one of the two criteria adopted for comparing the severity of different vibratory environments, the second being the maximum response of the system.

This criterion is also used to create a specification reproducing on the equipment the same effects as all the vibrations to which it will be subjected in its useful lifetime. This volume focuses on calculation of damage caused by random vibration.

This requires:

- having the relative response of the system under vibration represented by its PSD or by its rms value. Chapter 1 establishes all the useful relationships for that calculation. In Chapter 2 is described the main characteristics of the response.

- knowledge of the fatigue behaviour of the materials, characterized by S-N curve, which gives the number of cycles to failure of a specimen, depending on the amplitude of the stress applied. In Chapter 3 are quoted the main laws used to represent the curve, emphasizing the random nature of fatigue phenomena, followed by some measured values of the variation coefficients of the numbers of cycles to failure.

- determination of the histogram of the peaks of the response stress, supposed here to be proportional to the relative displacement. When the signal is Gaussian stationary, as was seen in Volume 3 the probability density of its peaks can easily be obtained from the PSD alone of the signal. When this is not the case, the response of the given one-degree-of-freedom system must be calculated digitally, and the peaks then counted directly. Numerous methods, ranging from the simplest (counting of the peaks) to the most complex (rainflow) have been proposed and are presented, with their disadvantages, in Chapter 5.

- choice of a law of accumulation of the damage caused by all the stress cycles thus identified. In Chapter 4 are described the most common laws with their limitations.

All these data are used to estimate the damage, characterized statistically if the probability density of the peaks is available, and deterministically otherwise (Chapter 6), and its standard deviation (Chapter 7).

Finally, in Chapter 8 are provided a few elements for damage estimation from other hypotheses concerning the shape of the S-N curve, the existence of an endurance limit, the non linear accumulation of damage, the law of distribution of peaks, and the existence of a non-zero mean value.
