This paper presents a generic methodology for the use of PFM within the context of bridge loading for the fatigue design and assessment of steel railway bridges and provides detailed guidance on how to use the proposed methodology in order to carry out a PFM-based fatigue assessment. The problem is set in a probabilistic context to take into account material, loading as well as modeling uncertainties. Guidance is given on how to calibrate a constant amplitude PFM analysis against an S-N curve. Finally, as a case study, a cracked welded bridge detail is considered and its time-dependent fatigue reliability is established © 2012 Taylor & Francis Group.
