The objective of this work is to find cumulative fatigue damage of the truck cabin caused by proving ground data. Stresses in the cabin are derived by finite element analysis using inertia relief method. Multi body simulation software ADAMS was used to obtain the load history at cabin attachment points using measured proving ground data as input. The fatigue damage of the truck cabin was estimated by linear super position method with static results and load history. The calculated numerical fatigue damage results were compared with physical test results and correlated.
