Some problems of fatigue life of machine elements and structures under service loadings

Ewald Macha
The paper contains a review of problems connected with fatigue life of machine elements and mechanical structures, presented during the 5th National Conference ''Fundamentals of construction, operation and testing of heavy-duty machines, including machines used in building engineering'', Zakopane 1992. On the basis of information from the latest world literature directions of the further investigations on heavy-duty machines life have been proposed.
