Fifteen papers by various authors are presented. The topics discussed are three vital aspects of the damage assessment in engineering materials. Experimental techniques to determine the cyclic stres-strain behavior and the initiation of cracks in materials are discussed. The importance of time (rate) dependent processes as they affect deformation and crack initiation is delineated in various papers. Notches and their life-reducing effect are examined from an experimental and analytical point of view. In the latter, elasto-plastic computer programs are employed. The crack initiation and crack propagation phase are separated and treated individually. The problems of damage definition, damage accumulation, and life prediction under variable amplitude loading receive attention in several papers. Individual papers are indexed separately.
