In this paper evolution equation based multiaxial fatigue model is applied to the analysis of fretting fatigue of a cantilever test specimen made of EN 10083-1 steel. The adopted high-cycle fatigue model is based on the concept of evolving endurance surface and damage evolution equation. For the endurance surface a simple linear relationship between the hydrostatic stress and the reduced deviatoric stress is used. It is observed that such a simple relationship does not model the fretting fatigue phenomena properly due to the high compressive hydrostatic stress state at the contact region. Also stress gradient effects should be taken into account in a more rigorous manner.
