There is a potential for metal fatigue in any situation where a component is subjected to cyclic loads. Fatigue failures of various types are a key concern in increasing the reliability of products. Problems involving fatigue have become more severe with the demand for lighter weight structures and components. The effective use of fatigue analysis and predictive tools is critical for reducing the development time of new products. Two methods of metal fatigue analysis will be covered. The first is the stress-life approach. This method is used for high cycle or very long life fatigue problems where loads have fairly constant amplitude.

Surface texture is one of the most important topics in today's world of design, development and performance. As tolerances are shrinking and performance demands are increasing, surface texture is rapidly becoming one of the most important aspects of engine and vehicle performance. Every moving component on a vehicle or engine is influenced by surface texture in one or more of the following ways: vibration, sealing, adhesion, traction, emissions, safety, durability, wear/failure analysis. Many of the industry's top warranty issues (leaks, noise, vibration, etc.) are a direct result of surface texture implications.
