In order to apply the damage tolerance design philosophy to design marine structures, accurate prediction of fatigue crack growth under service conditions is required. Now, more and more people have realized that only a fatigue life prediction method based on fatigue crack propagation (FCP) theory has the potential to explain various fatigue phenomena observed. In this book, the issues leading towards the development of a unified fatigue life prediction (UFLP) method based on FCP theory are addressed. Based on the philosophy of the UFLP method, the current inconsistency between fatigue design and inspection of marine structures could be resolved.
This book presents the state-of-the-art and recent advances, including those by the authors, in fatigue studies. It is designed to lead the future directions and to provide a useful tool in many practical applications. It is intended to address to engineers, naval architects, research staff, professionals and graduates engaged in fatigue prevention design and survey of marine structures, in fatigue studies of materials and structures, in experimental laboratory research, in planning the repair and maintenance of existing structures, and in rule development. The book is also an effective educational aid in naval architecture, marine, civil and mechanical engineering.

This volume contains a selection of papers presented at Fatigue Design 95 held in Helsinki, Finland from 5-8 September 1995. The papers have been peer reviewed and present practical aspects for the design of components and structures to avoid fatigue failure.
Alternative therapies have been used to significantly reduce the impact of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Fibromyalgia (FMS). If you are sufficiently motivated to start with even the smallest steps toward healing your underlying and contributing conditions, you can eventually live like the normal, healthy person you were before being laid low by these puzzling illnesses. In this book you will find the main areas to work on. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Fibromyalgia (FMS) is not" in your head" it is not a psychosomatic disorder it is a real illness. It is a disease with many debilitating symptoms such as Widespread muscle and joint pain General fatigue and stiffness Allergies and headaches Immune system malfunction Anxiety, depression, mood swings and 'fibro-fog' Sleep disorders Irritability and Stress Toxicity
