# Rainflow Fatigue

### From Python Wiki

**Utilities**

The scripts on this page require the utility modules

**Introduction**

A script for the ASTM E 1049-85 (2005) Rainflow Counting Method is given at rainflow.py

A GUI version using Tkinter is given at: rainflow_gui.py

**Dirlik Method**

A number of methods have been derived for performing rainflow cycle counting for a response PSD. The Dirlik method is an example of a semi-empirical method for cycle identification. A script for performing this method is given at: Dirlik_rainflow.py

The following script calculates the response of a single-degree-of-freedom system to an acceleration PSD base input, with an option for Dirlik rainflow cycle counting: sdof_ran.py

This script calculates the Dirlik Fatigue Damage Spectra for an acceleration PSD base input: vrs.py

**Matlab Script**

A Matlab script is posted at the Vibrationdata Blog: Matlab Mex

**Fatigue Damage Spectra from Time History**

A script for fatigue damage spectra is given at: fds.py
