An operating life analysis is the backbone of managing structural durability successfully and, thus, the focus of this chapter. Therefore, the understanding of the component’s strength behavior as well as of the loads to the structure is necessary. The stress–strength interference is introduced which equally relies on the analysis of the loads and the characteristics of the structure. Hence, load and stress analyses are described in this chapter as well as fundamental strength behavior and fatigue are introduced. We will learn to bring the results into a consistent form and to perform a damage calculation that answers the question as to whether the design is safe and durable enough.
