Annex 3-F

Determination of the maximum number of load cycles for fatigue in accordance with ASME VIII Div. 2 Annex 3-F Part 5

The decisive fatigue curve is selected depending on the magnitude of the principal stress differences and the choice of vessel material. From this, the maximum permissible number of load cycles is determined. Intermediate values are precisely interpolated logarithmically and thus permit optimum utilisation of the material.
