Published data on the methods of analytical and numerical prediction of initiation and propagation of subcritical damage in structural materials at cyclic loading, are analyzed. Main directions of elaboration of the respective procedures were outlined, and examples of both engineering rules of modeling different types of fractures, and of fundamental multidimensional models of the state of materials in critical structures under characteristic service conditions are given. 70 References, 2 Figure.
