Fatigue failure is a multi-stage process. It begins with the initiation of cracks, and with continued cyclic loading the cracks propagate, finally leading to the rupture of a component or specimen. The demarcation between the above stages is not well-defined. Depending upon the scale of . This paper reviews the capabilities of a plasticity-induced crack-closure model and life-prediction code to predict fatigue crack growth and fatigue lives of metallic materials. Crack-tip constraint factors, to account for three-dimensional effects, were selected to correlate large-crack growth rate data as a function of the effective-stress-intensity. Fatigue lives were calculated using the crack-growth relations and microstructural features like those that initiated cracks for the aluminum alloys and steel for edge-notched specimens. An equivalent- initial-flaw-size concept was used to calculate fatigue lives in other cases. Results from the tests and analyses agreed Size: 1MB. Prediction methods for fatigue lives and fatigue crack growth are discussed as well as verification by experiments. Load spectra analysis and statistical aspects are also addressed. The first edition of this book was well received and has been used extensively in various courses taught to staff members and students of universities and other Brand: Springer Netherlands.

In order to accurately predict the total fatigue life, quantitative simulation of the crack growth behavior is needed. When a crack reaches a sufficient length, the crack growth behavior is not sensitive to the microstructure and is described by linear elastic fracture by: 8. The fatigue life of bogie beam 1 was predicted with four different methods: the S-N-method, the fracture mechanics method, and the modification of the HdM-method with different values on the crack closure stress level. The predictions made with the two first methods were made by ABB Corporate Research and is reported in detail by: 3. fatigue crack growth rate equation for the remaining life. The two lives are added together to obtain the total fatigue life. All four of these fatigue life models are covered in this course/book File Size: KB.
