VTRC No.: 76-R24
Abstract: This report discusses the various types of fatigue tests, grouped by the type of specimen (beam, plate, Marshall, etc.) used. The discussion under each type of specimen covers the test, and the analytical methods used in evaluating the data. The test method showing the greatest overall capability was the electrohydraulic control system using a 3 in x 3 in x 15 in beam specimen.
