The possibility of fatigue damage analysis by the extrusion/intrusion structures on the surface of aluminium alloy is shown. Quantitative characteristics of the extrusion/intrusion structures and the methods for their monitoring are substantiated.   Two approaches for fatigue analysis are presented: a) direct inspection of the aircraft components; b) application of fatigue sensors.
