This study concentrates on the issues of the combination the users load profile with the measured stress spectrum in the fatigue design stage of the mobile crusher's frame. The study includes a fatigue assessment for three welded joints in the frame structure. The assessment was conducted with three different stress levels using stress spectra obtained from the field measurements. Double slope S-N curves with and without the cut-off limit were used in the damage calculations. A short discussion of appropriate finite element modelling and measurement techniques for nominal and hot spot stresses and a method for utilisation of the measurements results in the design stage is presented.
