Changes of Fatigue Property with Heat Exposure in INVAR/AW Wire
Fatigue properties of INVAR/AW wires have been investigated under the heat exposure in order to ensure stable operation and to estimate life span of their power line. In the case of heat exposure for 1000hr, fatigue life and limit increased. For further heat exposure, fatigue limit decreased due to the decrease in yield strength. The variation fatigue of strand wire was strongly dependent on its amplitude. Also, cracks in wires of 7 strands were caused by stress concentration at the outer surface and fretting between each wire during vibration.
