A new, low cost method to determine the accumulated structural loads in service (not to predict component fatigue life) that requires practically no on-board instrumentation is discussed. This method makes use of S/N fatigue life gages with high-gain mechanical multipliers bonded to a component. Permanent change in gage resistance results from the number of component load cycles and their magnitudes. These resistance change data are then used to reconstruct the load range history. The computer program on this method is listed in the Appendix. Results of laboratory tests conducted to validate the new method and evaluate the behavior of the multipliers over a practical range of operating temperature and strain magnitude and frequency are presented. The component load range distribution estimated by this method is compared to that measured by conventional methods for a vehicle operating on a proving ground route. The paper concludes with an application philosophy of this new method and a discussion of future plans.
