Study on Fatigue Crack Propagation at Negative Stress Ratio in 2A12 Aluminum Alloy
This paper intends to get compressive loading effect on fatigue crack growth of 2A12 aluminum alloy. The fatigue crack propagation tests at negative stress ratio R=-0.5, -1and -2 were made in different applied compressive loading. The result showed that the effect of the compressive loading part of the applied stress cycle on fatigue crack growth rate in 2A12 aluminum alloy at negative stress ratio can not be omitted.
