An extensive multiaxial random fatigue test programme was conducted at room temperature using tubular specimens. Experiments were performed under combined tension/torsion and triaxial loading, covering proportional and nonproportional variable amplitude loading cases. The two proposed life prediction methods discussed in Part 1 are evaluated using the experimental results, demonstrating that these two methods provide satisfactory predictions.
