RF-/STEEL Fatigue Members | Design
The fatigue strength design is based on the analysis using damage equivalent factors. The damage-equivalent stress ranges ΔσE,2 and ΔτE,2 in relation to 2*106 stress cycles are to be compared with the limit values of the fatigue strength ΔσC or ΔτC for 2*106 stress cycles of the corresponding detail category under consideration of the partial safety factors.
In this way, the individual design requirements are specified. Separate design cases allow for flexible analysis of selected members, sets of members, and actions as well as of individual cross-sections. You can freely define design-relevant parameters such as the design concept selection or the partial safety factors.
