A Key Parameter in a Novel Fatigue Crack Growth Model

Abstract:

Article Preview

The effect of the load ratio, R, or the mean-stress on fatigue life has been recognized for more than a hundred years. In this paper we first describe a novel mechanics model for fatigue crak growth (FCG) under constant amplitude (CA) loading based on static fracture mechanics with thinking about the inertial effect coefficient and its impact to crack tip, and then discuss the relation between R-ratio and fatigue crak growth rate. Comparison of the present analysis with experimental data taken from the literature demonstrates that R-ratio has a greater impact to the fatigue crack propagation.
