This thesis is a study of cumulative fatigue damage. Variations in cumulative fatigue damage resulting from block loading spectra and randomized cycle loading spectra are investigated. Fatigue damage results show the merit of counting load cycles using the range-pair counting method. complete FORTRAN computer program documentation enables this thesis to serve as a program user's manual.
