Fatigue

[safety] Fatigue is a major safety concern in many fields, but especially in transportation, because fatigue can result in disastrous accidents. Fatigue is considered an internal precondition for unsafe acts because it negatively affects the human operator`s internal state. Research has generally focused on pilots, truck drivers, and shift ...

Fatigue

Permanent structural change that occurs in a material subjected to fluctuating Stress and strain. However, in the case of glass, fatigue is determined by long-term static testing and is analogous to Stress rupture in other materials. In general, fatigue failure can occur with Stress levels below the elastic limit.

Fatigue

An important mode of failure of engineering components subjected to dynamic stresses. Failure can occur at stresses well below the yield point and tends to initiate at sharp changes in cross sectional area or other stress raisers. See also: Fatigue Resistance, Strain, Stress.
