FATIGUE LIFE DISTRIBUTION OF VEHICLE FRAME STRUCTURES

A theoretical description is given of life distribution in the case of stochastically loaded vehicle structural elements. This method is based on the extreme stress distribution from one side, and on the service strength distribution from the other side. The service strength is derived from the crack propagation functions as well as from the residual strength of cracked structural elements. For the covering abstract of the conference see TRIS 391971.
