Low Cycle Fatigue Life Prediction of Ti-6Al-4V Titanium Alloy under Multi-Axial Non Proportional Cyclic Loading
A series multi-axial tension and torsion low cycle fatigue life experiments of Ti-6Al-4V alloy were conducted on the MTS tension and torsion joint testing machine, in which the torsional strain control and non proportional cyclic loading method under the loading paths of circular, rectangular, square, oval and diamond were successively used. The experimental results are compared and analyzed with the results that calculated by the equivalent strain model, the energy method model and the critical plane method model. The results show that the critical plane method is the accurate prediction model to predict the multi-axial low cycle fatigue life of Ti-6Al-4V alloy.
