Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


  • Fatigue lifetime
  • Cyclic deformation behavior
  • Influence of the microstructure on the fatigue strength
  • Micro-crack initaion
  • Crack propagation and fracture mechanics
  • Influencing factors on fatigue strength of metallic materials
  • Modern testing and measuring methods

Competencies / intended learning achievements

The following expertises will be promoted:
  • Explain the differences between the monotonic static and cyclic strength of metallic materials as well as describe the fatigue process
  • Evaluate the fatigue strength of cyclically loaded metallic materials using statistically and physically based method
  • The knowledge of the relationships between microstructure, cyclic deformation and fatigue mechanisms of steels and light metals
  • Explain the influencing factors on fatigue strength of metallic materials and give examples
  • Explain the physical fundamentals of non-destructive measuring methods for the characterization of cyclic deformation behavior and fatigue
