    Strain controlled constant and variable amplitude fatigue tests for 316NG and Titanium stabilized stainless steels in low oxygen PWR waters were performed. The stabilized steel has been plant aged for 100 000 hours. Constant amplitude test results at 0,01 Hz sinusoidal straining comply with predicted lives according to the Fen approach for both materials. Spectrum straining both in air and in environment caused predicted life reduction factors (about 3) for the stabilized steel, but for the 316NG steel spectrum straining in environment resulted to a larger reduction in life.
