Life assessment techniques for components subject to random surface temperature fluctuations (thermal striping) are outlined. The approach depends on the thermal information available and ranges from simple evaluation of the initiation of fatigue cracking to the complete analysis of crack growth. A new bounding technique is described, and some uncertainties in the various analyses listed.
