Paper Title:
Mode II Fatigue Crack Behavior in Compact Tension Shear Specimen
  Abstract

The need for research on fatigue behavior of mechanical element under mixed-mode loading has been increasing as the user environment today becomes more and more complicated. However there haven’t been enough investigations on behavior in shear loads comparing to those under tensile loading conditions. So, for this paper, we investigated the characteristics and properties of initiation and propagation behavior for fatigue crack observed for different shapes of the initial crack and magnitudes of load in the modified compact tension shear (CTS) specimen subjected to mode II load. In the low-load condition, the secondary fatigue crack was created in the notch root due to friction on the pre-crack surface grew to a main crack. In the high-load condition meanwhile, fatigue crack under shear loading propagated branching from the pre-crack tip. Influenced by the shear loading condition, fatigue crack propagation was retarded in the initial propagation region due to the decrease in crack driving force and friction on the crack surface. In both cases, however, fatigue cracks grew in tensile mode. The propagation direction of fatigue crack under mode II loading was approximately at a 70 degree angle from the initial crack, regardless of its shape and load magnitude.
