Fatigue Damage Model for Numerical Assessment of Fatigue Characteristics
The aim of this study is the development of a numerical technique applicable for the fatigue assessment based on the damage mechanics approach. The generalized elasto-visco-plastic constitutive equation, which can consider the internal damage evolution behavior, is developed in order to numerically evaluate the material fatigue responses. Explicit information of the relationships between the mechanical properties and material constants, which are required for the mechanical constitutive and damage evolution equations, are derived. The performance of the developed technique has been verified using the S-N relationship assessment for STS304 stainless steel.
