Abstract This paper extends the average block variant of the generalised Frost-Dugdale crack growth law. We first reveal how the generalised Frost-Dugdale crack growth law to cover crack growth from initiation to final failure. We then show how this approach can be used to both represent and predict crack growth in both simple and complex structural geometries under variable amplitude loading.
