Fatigue lifetime prediction of metallic engineering structures is typically based on a cumulative damage law. The linear damage accumulation rule by Miner is the universal standard for fatigue design, even though it is known to suffer from some drawbacks (e.g., it does not account for the order in which sequences of different stress amplitude are applied). Numerous experimental studies have shown both conservative and non-conservative lifetime predictions, sometimes to a great extent. In an effort to overcome these deficiencies, various nonlinear cumulative damage models and life prediction models have been developed. However, none of them have found wide acceptance, and it has been shown that a lack of (well-documented) experimental data hinders the development and critical validation of new damage accumulation laws.
The aim of this Special Issue, ‘Fatigue Damage Accumulation in Metals’, is to collect state-of-the-art work on this topic. Experimental work on nonlinear damage accumulation is highly encouraged, as are works that critically evaluate and compare various types of damage accumulation laws.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
