Fatigue Crack Propagation Rate in EUROFER 97 Estimated Using Small Specimens

Abstract:

Article Preview

The proposed paper describes fatigue damage evolution in Eurofer 97 reduced activation ferritic-martensitic steel. The short crack growth study was performed on small cylindrical specimens using an MTS 880 servohydraulic machine at constant strain amplitude. Based on the fatigue crack growth data obtained and corresponding 3D finite element analysis Paris law region of the fatigue curve were estimated. The results obtained were compared with standard determination of the fatigue crack growth rate according to ASTM using CT specimens. The presented results can help to transfer experimental data measured on small specimens to large structures and vice versa.
