dc.description.abstract Abstract: This paper presents a new fatigue model to predict life of steel bridges considering the effect of high amplitude loading. It consists of a modified strain-life curve and a new strain based damage index. Modified strainlife curve consists of Coffin-Manson relation in low cycle fatigue region and a new strain-life curve in high cycle fatigue region. The damage variable is based on a modified von Mises equivalent strain to account for the effects of loading non-proportionality and strain path orientation in multiaxial stress state. The proposed model was verified with experimental test results of two materials available on the literature. Then, it was illustrated with an old riveted wrought iron railway bridge. The obtained results verify the effectiveness of the proposed model over commonly used Miner’s rule based life prediction of steel bridges en_US
