Life Degeneration Rule on 2A12 Aluminium Alloy with Corrosion and Fatigue Experiment
2A12 specimens are selected in pre-corrosion fatigue test to get the ground corrosion effect coefficient, namely C(t) curve. Then, combining with Miner linear cumulative damage theory, theoretical fatigue life model is established based on the simulated corrosion-fatigue interactive process. Compared with actual corrosion-fatigue interactive test, theoretical life in short interactive periods is almost same, but actual life is higher in long interactive periods. Afterwards, a modified model based on C(t) curve at different interactive periods is established. The calculation shows that the modified results are in good agreement with the corrosion-fatigue interactive test.
