34213SN Curves for Aluminum

S-N curves have been proposed by the Aluminum Association for welded aluminum structures [27,28]. The categories for details are similar to those for steel, although the fatigue strength of a detail is approximately 38% of the fatigue strength of the same detail in steel. For aluminum, the exponent in Equation 34.1 is variable and is given in Table 34.1 with the coefficient A and CAFL. The design procedures are similar and the classification of details into categories is approximately the same.
