Comparison of surface integral model results to experimental data for 60 deg angled surface crack subject to cyclic tension loading. Graph (above) shows number of cycles plotted against crack half-length, c, at the free surface where c is measured perpendicular to the direction of the load. Photograph (above right) of precrack with growth rings is consistent with resulting crack mesh (below right).

Comparison of surface integral model results to field data for a part undergoing spectrum loading. Graph above shows number of spectrum hours versus crack depth. Photograph (above right) of growth rings corresponds to cross section indicated on part insert. Succession of crack fronts predicted by the model is also shown (below right).
