A practical, informative reference for the design of safe, effective aluminum components and structures Focusing on the unique design challenges associated with using aluminum in such fatigue-critical applications as highway infrastructures, transportation vehicles, automotive suspension systems, and aircraft and machine parts, this authoritative reference gives the reliable data and proven guidelines that mechanical and civil design engineers need to meet these challenges head on. Drawing on their combined 86-plus years of experience working with designers of aluminum products, the authors present the princiciples and practical considerations essential for safe and effective fatigue design, including information on: S-N curves, strain control, crack propagation, local stress, good practice considerations, and other key design topics; Material properties and component behavior, with extensive data presented in appendixes; Various methods for using that data to make life predictions or other fatigue behavior calculations, based on different design scenarios; Comparison of existing worldwide fatigue design codes for aluminum structures. In Addition, the authors provide details on fatigue mechanisms. . .the behavior of smooth and notched parts. . .joints with welds. . .mechanical fasteners and adhesives. . .loads and spectra. . .enhancement techniques. . .testing methods. . .and much more. Armed with the practical information and proven methods contained here, you'll be well prepared to handle any aluminum fatigue design problem with confidence.About the Author:
