About the Author

About the authors H.O. FUCHS is Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. He received his education and early training in Germany and continued his career as a design and research engineer in the U.S. with General Motors and other companies. In 1945 he left GM to design suspensions and accessories for railway cars in Los Angeles and started a shot-peening business as a silent partner. In 1954 he joined the shot-peening business full time. Professor Fuchs has written many papers on fatigue design and is very active in the SAE Fatigue Design and Evaluation Committee, ASTM, ASME, and ASEE. He was honored by ASEE for innovations in teaching in 1974 and by ASME for design in 1980. R.I. STEPHENS is a Professor of Materials Engineering at The University of Iowa. He received a Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics from the University of Wisconsin in 1965. His primary research interests and publications involve fatigue and fracture mechanics. Professor Stephens is a member of ASEE, ASTM Committee E-09 on fatigue, the ASTM Committee E-24 on fracture testing of metals and the SAE fatigue design and evaluation committee. He is coordinator of The Annual SAE-University of Iowa Fatigue Concepts in Design short course first offered with Professor Fuchs in 1970.
