The precise prediction of fatigue life in the initiation stage has become necessary. The common prediction study for structural fatigue life takes less influence factors into consideration. The common prediction results of fatigue life cannot be quantitatively corrected by the influence factors at the same time. This paper presents a research on the prediction approach for structural fatigue life based on the multi-factor correction. The influence of some factors on the fatigue life was analyzed and the prediction approach for structural fatigue life based on multi-factor correction was raised. Then the fatigue life of axle housing was predicted by using the corrected approach, as the case study. Moreover, the result predicted by the local stress-strain approach and the experimental data were used to verify the accuracy of the corrected approach. It can be clearly demonstrated by the results that the corrected prediction approach can be used to achieve the precision fatigue life for engineering structures. Further, it is also a prediction approach endowed with engineering application prospects.
