Paper Title:
The Influence of HAZ on Fatigue Life of 16Mn Steel
  Abstract

In order to understand the influence of Heat-Affected Zone (HAZ) on fatigue properties of 16Mn steel, a series of cyclic torsional tests were conducted on 16Mn weld metal, the base metal, and the HAZ metal. The specimens of 2mm diameter were uniformly-spaced taken from a bulk 16Mn plate, which included a V-style welded joint in the center, and the space for each specimen was 4mm. From cyclic fatigue tests performed on specimens at different positions, one can observe that the fatigue damage evolution in the HAZ is faster than those in the weld and the base metal, i.e., HAZ has a significant effect on fatigue life of 16Mn. In addition, the peak stress decline curves of HAZ specimens in different rows are considerably diversified, but the damage evolution and fatigue properties of HAZ metal are similar in spite of their locations.
