Investigations of fatigue of concrete are reviewed starting in 1898 with the work of Considere and De Joly. More tha#n 100 publications on the subject, including those in the foreign literature, were surveyed. The most important investigations are summarized and the salient facts which seem to be emerg-ing from the research are listed. The work has been divided for discussion into six categories: fatigue in compression, fatigue in flexure, fatigue in tension, fatigue of bond, fatigue of reinforced concrete, and fatigue of prestressed concrete.
