The present paper describes the application of artificial neural networks for estimating the finite-life fatigue strength and fatigue limit. A comprehensive database with results of single-stage tests on specimens which simulate structural components is evaluated and prepared for processing with the use of neural networks. The available data are subdivided into different classes. A total of six different data classes are specified. The results of the prediction by means of neural networks are superior to those obtained with conventional methods for calculating the fatigue strength. The experimental results are estimated with high accuracy.

Keywords: S–N curves; artificial neural networks; constant amplitude tests
