Multiaxial Fatigue Life Prediction of Metallic Materials Based on Critical Plane Method under Non-Proportional Loading
The critical plane method is widely discussed because of its effectiveness for predicting the multiaxial fatigue life prediction of metallic materials under the non-proportional loading conditions. The aim of the present paper is to give a comparison of the applicability of the critical plane methods on multiaxial fatigue life prediction. A total of 205 multiaxial fatigue test data of nine kinds of metallic materials under various strain paths are adopted for the experimental verification. Results shows that the von Mises effective strain parameter and KBM critical plane parameter can give well predicted fatigue lives for multiaxial proportional loading conditions, but give poor prediction lives evaluation for multiaxial non-proportional loading conditions. However, FS parameter shows better accuracy than the KBM parameter for multiaxial fatigue prediction for both proportional and non-proportional loading conditions.
