The present work aims to predict the cyclic behavior and fatigue life of 316 FR stainless steel specimens at 650 °C. First, the samples were modeled using finite element analysis under different strain amplitudes, and the obtained numerical hysteresis loops were compared against experimental results available in the literature. Then, the fatigue life was estimated using different fatigue life prediction models, namely the Coffin–Manson model, Ostergren’s damage function, and Smith–Watson–Topper model, and was compared to the experimental fatigue life. The obtained results revealed that the numerical cyclic stress–strain data are in good agreement with those obtained experimentally. In addition, the predicted fatigue lives using the previously mentioned fatigue life models and based on the provided equation parameters are within a factor of 2.5 of the experimental results. Accordingly, it is suggested that they can be used to predict the fatigue life of 316 FR stainless steel.
