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 That 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.

Rainflow-counting algorithm

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.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Views Read Edit View history. The algorithm was developed by Tatsuo Endo and M. Assume that a specimen is loaded periodically until failure.

ASTM E1049 – 85(2017)

In other projects Wikimedia Asmt. Compare this to the data in Figure 2, which cannot be assessed in terms of simple stress reversals.

Periodic Loading Rearranged into Blocks.

The actual load history is asym in Figure 5. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. For simple periodic loadings, such as Figure 1, rainflow counting is unnecessary. Periodic Loading with Time.

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. This page was last edited on 7 Septemberat Simple rainflow e10499 algorithms.

There are two key assumptions made in order to rearrange the loads into blocks. These assumptions may affect the validity of the procedure depending on the situation.

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

The number of blocks endured before failure can be determined easily by using the Palmgren-Miner rule of block loading. There are many cases in which axtm structure will undergo periodic loading. If all of the similar loads zstm grouped together, it forms a series of block loads as shown in Figure 6. Retrieved from ” https: To find N f number of loads to failure for each load the Goodman-Basquin relation can be used.


Materials science Elasticity physics Fracture mechanics. The rainflow-counting algorithm also known as the “rain-flow counting method” is used in the analysis of fatigue data in order to reduce a spectrum of varying stress into a set of simple stress reversals.
