    An investigation of the dynamic and static fatique of finger-jointed beams in bending was carried out. Results were obtained for five different frequencies from static loading to a load cycle period of two minutes. A total of seven series were long-term tested and five series were short-term tested. The results show that time to failure decreases with increasing frequency of load cycles. The results were modelled with respect to both time and number of cycles to failure using a theory developed at BKM. The model showed good agreement with test results.
