The course sets out from a recapitulation of "classic" fatigue design with emphasis on different fatigue phenomena and key influencing parameters both from a solid mechanics' and a materials' perspective.

Subsequent sections include
- in-depth discussion on contact mechanics phenomena with connections to multiaxial fatigue, tribology etc.
- fatigue testing including statistical issues
- in-depth discussions on crack growth prediction including complications with numerical simulations, large-scale plasticity, small crack growth, influence of overloads and material deformation etc.
- overview of other topics such as
 - ultra high cycle fatigue
 - vibration fatigue and random fatigue
 - corrosion fatigue
 - creep fatigue

It is fairly open to adjust the focus (and partly the scope) of the course to fit needs and interests of the participants.
