The distribution of unsteady temperatures in the wall of the 6" FATHER mixing tee mock-up is calculated for a loading configuration: The results seem realistic even if they are not still very accurate (see paper PVP2005-71592 [11]). On this basis, thermal stresses are evaluated for elastic and elastic-plastic material behavior. Then, different types of fatigue criteria are used to evaluate the fatigue damage. The paper develops a brief description of the criteria, the corresponding fatigue damage evaluation and attempts to explain the differences.
