    How to test for fatigue under a temperature load

    Majd Al Mohtar

      i have an HDPE plastic in which I want to predict the life of, when exposed to radiaton. The maximum temperature it reaches is 58 degrees for 2 hrs per day, but when i apply the temperature load I link this static study to a fatigue analysis. Is this the right way to predict the life? I got 2*10^5 cycles as a lifetime.

       

      help is much needed and appreciated!
