7th Edition 2020
232 pages


The actual 7th edition of the FKM-Guideline “Analytical Strength Assessment for Machine Components” has been completely revised. Hence, a listing of all changes is not manageable.
The following important changes were carried out in the calculation algorithm:
-  ductility now clearly referred to elongation at rupture,
-  new parameters for long-term temperature factors,
-  addition of elastic strain to the total critical strain for calculation of section factor,
-  introduction of the hardening factor,
-  static strength values of welded components with reference to Eurocode 9,
-  enhanced stress definition for general possibility for application of critical plane approach in fatigue,
-  parallel description of fatigue strength assessment via maximal stress amplitude and via equivalent stress amplitude,
-  adjusted parameters for the Kt/Kf-ratio according to Siebel & Stieler for aluminium castings
-  extended the applicability of the coating factor to zincplated steel
-  limitation of the maximum amplitude formulated with considering mean stress and mean stress sensitivity,
-  slight modifications in S-N curve system,
-  new formulated sign rule for combined utilisation,
-  clarification of decisive result of assessment (single utilisations vs. combined utilisation),
-  complete revision of material tables,
-  new material group "Ausferritic cast iron with nodular graphite" (ADI),
-  new table of fatigue notch factors for press-fitted shafts according to DIN 743,
-  new formulation of fatigue strength assessment of welded components on base of notch stresses or effective stresses,
-  introduction of specific surface treatment factors for weld post-treatment according to IIW.
The description for overload cases F3 and F4 has been removed because of their rather rare practical application.
Their use in accordance with the sixth edition of the FKM Guideline is still permissible.
