This page was last edited on 7 Septemberat If all of the similar loads are grouped together, it forms a series of block loads as shown in Figure 6. Downing and Socie created one of the more widely referenced and utilized rainflow cycle-counting algorithms in[2] which was included as one of many cycle-counting algorithms in ASTM E From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Rainflow-counting algorithm

Materials science Elasticity physics Fracture mechanics. Views Read Edit View history. The rainflow-counting algorithm also known as the “rain-flow counting method” is used in the analysis of fatigue asmt in order to reduce a spectrum of varying stress into a set of simple stress reversals. Igor Rychlik gave a mathematical definition for the rainflow counting method, [5] thus enabling closed-form computations from the statistical properties of the load signal.


For simple periodic loadings, such as Figure 1, rainflow counting is unnecessary. Periodic Loading Rearranged into Blocks. Retrieved from ” https: Assume that a specimen is loaded periodically until failure.

The number of blocks endured before failure can aetm determined easily by using the Palmgren-Miner rule of block loading. Compare this to the data in Figure 2, which cannot be assessed in terms of simple stress reversals. The algorithm was developed by Tatsuo Endo and M. Simple rainflow counting algorithms.

ASTM E1049 – 85(2017)

The actual load history is shown in Figure 5. Asym sequence clearly has 10 cycles of amplitude 10 MPa and a structure’s life can be estimated from a simple application of the relevant S-N curve. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Sstm and Privacy Policy.

All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from April There are many cases in which a structure will undergo periodic loading.


Its importance is that it allows the application of Miner’s rule in order to assess the fatigue life of a structure subject to complex loading.

There are two key assumptions made in order to rearrange the loads into blocks. Periodic Loading with Time.

ASTM E – 85() Standard Practices for Cycle Counting in Fatigue Analysis

These assumptions may affect the validity of the procedure depending on the situation. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

To find N f number of loads to failure for each load the Goodman-Basquin relation can be used.
