Paper Title:
Reliability Analysis of Corrosion Fatigue Crack Growth for 2024-T3 Aluminum Alloy
  Abstract

Fatigue crack growth rate experiments of center-cracked tension (CCT) specimens of the 2024-T3 aluminum alloy under constant-amplitude load in corrosive environment are carried out with 3 kinds of loading frequency. The fatigue crack growth rates in 3.5% NaCl solution are obtained by using seven-point incremental polynomial method. A probabilistic approach is presented for fatigue crack growth rate in corrosive environment with log-normal random variable model. The reliability analysis of crack propagation is conducted based on the experimental data. The crack exceedance probability at given service time and the distribution of the service time at given crack size are obtained by using the reliability analysis approach. The effect of loading frequency on crack propagation is studied. It is shown that the fatigue crack growth rate is increasing with loading frequency decreasing in corrosive environment. The predicted results by the presented method match the experimental results very well.
