Concept of Fatigue for Determining Characteristics of Materials with Strengthening


Article Preview

The paper presents the concept of division of the total strain amplitudes. Simulations were performed for high-alloy steel X6NiCr3220 for proposing a new curve of cyclic strain based on the best fit to the experimental points and plotted the hysteresis loop. Proposed allocation of the total strain amplitude in three parts: the plastic strain amplitude, strain amplitude and the amplitude of the linearly elastic strain coupled. In order to preserve the forms of popular formula Ramberg-Osgoda and Manson-Coffin-Basquin modified them in such a way that added to their member responsible for the description of the coupled strain. Inclusion of additional term leading to closer representation of the actual material properties.
