This paper presents and compares some common fatigue design methods for concrete structures and discuss the factors considered in the individual design methods. Further, some of the background literature for the methods is presented and discussed. In conclusion, this paper summarizes which topics related to concrete compression fatigue should be studied further by experimental tests from the authors point of view in order to optimize the concrete compression fatigue design methods.
