Current approaches widely used in fatigue and fracture evaluations of mechanical components are summarized. Metallic alloys, and fatigue and fracture behavior in the absence of environmental effects such as corrosion or elevated temperatures, are considered. Certain shortcomings in the approaches are then discussed, followed by samples of recent work to improve the capabilities to make fatigue and fracture assessments. Finally, future developments that could further enhance those capabilities are suggested.
