I m a little bit confused whether the rainflow counting algorithm provided with MLife outputs ranges or amplitudes (range=2*Amplitude). The rfhist Routine asks for Amplitude in the flag
% rfflag - string, data type flag,
% ‘ampl’ for amplitude,
% ‘mean’ for mean value,
% ‘freq’ for frequency and ‘period’ for time period of
% extracted cycles.
and the rainflow Routine documentation writes about amplitudes.
In the MLife Manual Greg Hayman writes about ranges. My results seem to be ranges as well at a first glance.
