On the Formulation and Application of Design Rules
Design rules are stated in the form of a predictor of failure initiation and its allowable value in the context of design of mechanical and structural components subjected to cyclic loading. Calibration and validation procedures are described and illustrated for the predictors with the aid of published experimental data. It is noted that mathematical models cannot be validated with respect to the allowable value of predictors.

“Small errors in modeling can lead to substantial errors in joint performance prediction. To alleviate this problem, the CAI used the handbook functionality of ESRD Inc.’s (St. Louis, Mo.) trademarked StressCheck® P-version finite element software to develop reusable models of typical joints.”
