Paper Title:
Fatigue Crack Initiation and Growth in a High Loaded Bolted Bar Connection
  Abstract

The fatigue crack initiation and growth in a high loaded bolted bar connection made of high strength steel S1100Q is presented. The material parameters for the fatigue crack initiation f’, f’, b and c are determined using low cycle fatigue test according to ASTM E 606 standard. The fracture mechanics parameters C and m are determined according to ASTM E 647 standard. Based on low cycle fatigue parameters the computational analysis is performed to determine the number of stress cycles required for the fatigue crack initiation. The remain service life up to the final failure is than determined using the known parameters C and m and calculated stress intensity factor, where 3D numerical analysis is performed. The bolted bars are also experimentally tested. Comparison of computational and experimental results shows a reasonable agreement.
