The rainflow-counting algorithm also known as the “rain-flow counting method” is used in the analysis of fatigue e10449 in order to reduce a spectrum of varying stress into a set of simple stress reversals. 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.

Rainflow-counting algorithm

The algorithm was developed by Tatsuo Endo and M. 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 asstm algorithms in ASTM E Igor Rychlik gave a mathematical definition for the rainflow counting method, [5] thus e10049 closed-form computations from the statistical properties of the load signal.


For simple periodic loadings, such as Figure 1, rainflow counting is unnecessary.

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. Compare this to the data in Figure 2, which cannot be assessed in terms of simple stress reversals. There are many s1049 in which a structure will undergo periodic loading.

ASTM E1049 – 85(2017)

Assume that a specimen is loaded periodically until failure. The number of blocks endured before failure can be determined easily by using the Palmgren-Miner rule of block loading.

The actual load history is shown in Figure 5. If all of the similar loads are grouped together, it forms a series of block loads as shown in Figure 6.

To find N f e104 of loads to failure for each load the Goodman-Basquin relation can be used. 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. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Periodic Loading with Time.
