The recently proposed multiaxial racetrack filter (MRF) is able to deal with general non-proportional multiaxial load histories. While only requiring a single user-defined scalar filter amplitude, the MRF is able to synchronously eliminate non-damaging events from any noisy multiaxial load history without changing the overall shape of its original path, a necessary condition to avoid introducing errors in fatigue damage assessments. The MRF procedures are optimized here by the introduction of a pre-processing “partitioning” step on the load history data, which selects candidates for the reversal points in a robust partitioning process, highly increasing the filter efficiency and decreasing its computational time. The improved MRF is evaluated through the fatigue analyses of over-sampled tension-torsion data measured in 316L stainless steel tubular specimens under non-proportional load paths.
