I am working on a project which deals with A330 cockpit cross beams. the cross beams are fatigue critical structure. i am going to put an external weight (18 kg) on these cross beams and would like to understand how the fatigue life of these cross beams will be effected (decrease) due to the increase in weight (load)? the cross beams will have a fatigue life, i want to understand how to calculate the fatigue life of this structure, before and after addition of the weight. i will highly appreciate any suggestions/ideas.
