The results of kinematic motion analysis were used for the structural analysis based on data that the load applied to each part. The problem of the fatigue strength estimation of materials or components containing natural defects, inclusions or in homogeneities is of great importance for both a scientifically or industrial point of view. Fatigue behavior in components is often affected by the presence of residual stresses introduced by processes such as actuator system. Analysis can provide the estimation of the crack growth curves with sufficient accuracy, even in case of complicated bell crank structures which are crucial for preserving aileron integrity and which participate in transfer of load. Probability of crack detection or any other damage detection is a result of many factors. An endurance life prediction of bell crank is used finite element analyses. Endurance test data for slim test specimens were compared with the predicted fatigue life for verification.
