General guidance notes for selection:
- Properties quoted for the components in this document relate to continuous steading loading or deformation conditions.
- For continuous dynamic cyclic loading or deformation, the maximum values should be reduced to approximately 30% of the figures quoted, depending on frequency.
For medium and low incidence loading and deformation, the tabled values may be increased up to 2 to 3 times.
Combined stressing in the different modes and the effects of stress reversals may require a more critical assessment.
Typical applications include:
- Traction and braking reaction rods
- Hydraulic damper fixings
