The software of fatigue life estimate of large-scale metal structure is designed by using Matlab graphical user interface (GUI) and program design technique, which adopts modular design idea and object-oriented design tools. So it can conveniently and exactly estimate fatigue life of large-scale metal structure, and its GUI is friendly, and the data expression is featured by visualization. A good result is achieved by using the software to estimate fatigue life of the metal structure of a company’s large-scale container crane.
