Fatigue strength is one of the most important mechanical properties of steel. Here we describe the development and deployment of data-driven ensemble predictive models for fatigue strength of a given steel alloy represented by its composition and processing information. The forward models for PSPP relationships (predicting property of a material given its composition and processing parameters) are built using over 400 experimental observations from the Japan National Institute of Materials Science (NIMS) steel fatigue dataset. Forty modeling techniques, including ensemble modeling were explored to identify the set of best performing models for different attribute sets. Data-driven feature selection techniques were also used to find a small non-redundant subset of attributes, and the processing/composition parameters most influential to fatigue strength were identified to inform future design efforts. The developed predictive models are deployed in a user-friendly online web-tool available at
