The paper describes a first attempt to produce a complete system of calculations that cover the entire range of assessments required in the Life Assessment method R5 based on a new programming method, the Linear Matching Method, and using shakedown and related concepts. We show that two solutions types are possible, the first assuming a constant residual stress field that provides shakedown and related limits. The second method involves the evaluation of the amplitude of the changing residual stress field. This provides the first stage for the ratchet limit and the amplitude of plastic strain. By adaptation the elastic follow-up factor corresponding to creep dwell periods may also be evaluated.
