Evaluation of the Fatigue Limit for Notched Parts Considering the Influences of Work Hardening and Residual Stress by Cold Working
Nearly 90% of failures of machines and mechanical parts are caused at the area of stress concentrated in the structural components . Hence, it is important to investigate the method of improving fatigue strength for notched parts, and method of evaluation the fatigue strength of notched parts for mechanical engineering. In this paper, the tests were carried out for improving the fatigue strength of specimens, with the hole notches that have been chamfered by die-pressing. The fatigue strength of notched part is enhanced to around 100% by die-pressing, comparing with notched specimen without die-pressing. Based on the above results, the new method for evaluation the fatigue strength with both the effects of work hardening and residual stress caused by the cold working. The estimated results by the method revealed good agreement with the tested results.
