Cyclic Mechanical Properties of 16MnR Welded Joint under Constant
Fatigue tests are carried out for 16MnR welded joint under constant strain control. Test results reveal that 16MnR weld metal exhibits characteristic of cyclic softening and non-masing obviously. The strain–life curve can be best described by the three-parameter equation. It shows the fatigue endurance limit in the heat-affecting zone (HAZ) of welded joint is lower than that in the weld metal.
