He recognized that a single load application, far below the static strength of a structure, did not do any damage to the structure. But if the same load was repeated many times it could induce a complete failure. In the 19th century fatigue was thought to be a mysterious phenomenon in the material because fatigue damage could not be seen. Failure apparently occurred without any previous warning. In the 20th century, we have learned that repeated load applications can start a fatigue mechanism in the material leading to nucleation of a small crack, followed by crack growth, and ultimately to complete failure.
The history of engineering structures until now has been marked by numerous fatigue failures of machinery, moving vehicles, welded structures, aircraft, etc. From time to time such failures have caused catastrophic accidents, such as an explosion of a pressure vessel, a collapse of a bridge, or another complete failure of a large structure.
Many fatigue problems did not reach the headlines of the news papers but the economic impact of non-catastrophic fatigue failures has been tremendous. Fatigue of structures is now generally recognized as a significant problem. Historical milestone papers were collected by Hanewinkel and Zenner  and Sanfor . John Mann  compiled literature sources on fatigue problems covering the period from to in four books. Since that time the number of publications on fatigue has still considerably increased and it may be estimated to be around , in the year Fortunately, consulting the literature on specific topics can now be done with computerized literature retrieval systems.

Current structural design and analytical procedures used by the aeronautics industry are largely semiempirical, even though significant improvements have occurred in structural analysis methodology over the last two decades. Preliminary design efforts require estimates using relatively quick, easy to use, and insightful tools to allow sensitivity studies among different structural design options. Final design efforts require tools that provide a precise and accurate assessment of the structural design.
