In order to ensure the consistent safety level for assessment of fatigue failure, the design fatigue factors (DFFs) to be used for fatigue design should be dependent on the analysis procedure and premises used. In the present paper, an assessment of appropriate DFFs for piles subjected to dynamic actions...
