Paper Title:
Fatigue Life Enhancement of Welded Steel-Steel Composite during Crack Growth from Weak to Strong Steel: An Experimental Validation
  Abstract

Strength mismatch effect across weld interfaces, generated by welding weak and strong steels, influences fatigue and fracture properties of a welded bimetallic composite. Advancing fatigue crack tip in weak parent steel is shielded from the remote load when it reaches near the interface of ultra strong weld steel. Entry of crack tip plasticity into weld steel induces load transfer towards weld which dips crack growth rates thereby enhancing the fatigue life of the composite. A computational model for fatigue life prediction of strength mismatched welded composite under K dominant conditions is validated by experimental work in this paper. Notched bimetallic compact tension specimens, prepared by electron beam welding of weak alloy and strong maraging steels, are subjected to fatigue testing in high cycle regime.
