Essentials of Endurance Analysis

Robert E. Little, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, College of Engineering and Computer Science, University of Michigan-Dearborn, MI (in memoriam)

978-1-60595-605-3, December 2019, 202 pages, 6×9, softcover book

  • Provides a series of essays on key topics on fatigue in machine design
  • Includes concise explanations of important topics and contributions including those by August Wöhler, J. Goodman and R.R. Moore
  • Written in a candid, accessible and reader-friendly style
  • Level is ideal for mechanical engineering students and professionals working in machine design and fatigue
  • Original illustrations including fatigue specimen photomicrographs support the text

This book provides a unique mechanical metallurgy perspective in presenting classical fatigue testing theories with a highly practical approach. Coverage includes Wöhler’s fatigue tests, fatigue crack initiation, fatigue effects in machine design, generalized fatigue models, fatigue factor of safety, and fatigue of bolted joints.
