The proposed method has been demonstrated on the universal slopes equation (Manson 1965) and the modified universal slopes equation (Muralidharan & Manson 1998). New equations take into account independence of the transient strain range from the cycle mean stress, define more precisely the impact of the cycle mean stress upon the durability, take into account the impact of cycle mean strain plastic component upon the durability. The resulted equations have been validated with finite element analyses of smooth samples and full-scale parts, for which the results of cyclic tests in the conditions of asymmetric loading are available. The analyses have been performed employing an elastic-plastic approach using cyclic strain curves taken from original durability equations. The use of new equations ensured a good match between design and experimental durability values. Also, the new equations were used to plot Smith and Hay diagrams for low, mean and high durability. The resulted analytical diagrams represent a high quality illustration of the experimental diagrams found in the publications. The presented approach to the accounting for cycle mean stress and strain will also apply when using experimental cyclic durability curves specific for the material.
