In recent years different experimental methods have been experienced to enhance the fatigue characterisation of materials with the aim to overcome the Standard long-lasting tests, i.e. Wohler curve determination. Standard fatigue treatment requires at least 15 specimens being tested to get an estimation of material fatigue limit and it is worth noting that this kind of tests do not provide any information on damage phenomena occurring in the material. Thus, topic to be addressed in this research have to do with development of lock-in infrared measurement based thermal method for rapid evaluation of fatigue limit. By performing a single test, the adopted method leads to match different parameter information. The Assessed parameters are in number more than the ones provided by TSA, as well. Moreover, the adopted technique points to study damage by analysing the different phenomena involved in fatigue and in this regard, the aim of this paper is to show how a thermal technique can attain an early assessment of the failure processes during a cyclically loading test. The author is, also, focused on to illustrate the strong points of a method based on infrared measurements for assessing endurance limit for both austenitic and martensitic stainless steels while considering, as reference, the Standard Test methods.
