In this study, a questionnaire was used to determine the average customer usage of the light commercial vehicles in Turkey. Approximately on 50 road routes and on rough roads in Turkey, the fatigue characteristics of the road profiles were measured by a many sensors equipped on LCV (Light Commercial vehicle).This article focuses on defining the general load spectrum of Turkey roads belong to the driving shaft. Rain-flow statistical counting method was applied driving shaft’s signals in order to make fatigue comparisons meaningfully and other application. Fatigue analysis of the driving shaft according to MP (Turkish mission profiles) were calculated by using FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and verified by the Palmgren-Miner rule.
