Abstract

This thesis discusses the analysis of fatigue crack growth in the presence of residual stresses to determine a suitable method for fatigue life predictions. In the research discussed herein, the prediction methodologies are compared to determine the most accurate prediction technique. Finite element analysis results are presented as well as laboratory test data. The validity of each methodology is addressed and future work is proposed.
