Abstract: The rate effect on concrete tensile strength can be modeled by the description of crack extension in a fictitious fracture plane [1,2].The plane represents the initial, internal damage and the geometry of the final fracture plane. In the paper, the same approach is applied to model the failure envelope for the biaxial loading condition of static lateral compression and axial impact tensile load. The predicted failure envelope is compared with data from experimental work.

Abstract: This paper focused on the tensile performance of PVC-coated membrane materials under multi-axial loads. Several groups of experiments were carried out to investigate the effect of the specimen configuration and the loading speed on the tensile properties. It could be concluded that the configuration of the specimen plays an important role on the tensile performance of the materials. The suitable configuration for multi-axial loading tests had been identified. It was also found out that the loading speed had certain effect on the tensile failure performance and the tensile response. A loading speed of lower than 20mm/min was suggested to achieve a reasonable result of the multi-axial tensile performance of PVC-coated membrane materials. Another group of tensile experiments with a crack in the center of the specimens under multi-axial loads were performed. It was noticed that the tensile properties in warp direction of the coated membrane materials play an important role in the tensile failure under multi-axial loads, no matter the initial crack length and the crack orientation are.

Abstract: The paper includes a review of literature on the multiaxial fatigue failure criteria based on the critical plane concept. The criteria were divided into three groups according to the distinguished fatigue damage parameter used in the criterion, i.e. (i) stress, (ii) strain and (iii) strain energy density criteria. Each criterion was described mainly by the applied the critical plane position. The multiaxial fatigue criteria based on two critical planes seem to be the most promising. These two critical planes are determined by different fatigue damage mechanisms (shear and tensile mechanisms).

Abstract: This study presents a newly developed multiaxial high cycle fatigue testing machine which can load a cyclic bending loading and a reversed torsion loading onto an hour-glass shaped solid bar specimen. This testing machine can perform the fatigue tests with a high frequency under a proportional and a non-proportional loading conditions. In the non-proportional loading, principal directions of stress and strain are changed in a cycle. In the testing machine, the loading is generated by centrifugal force caused by the revolving weights attached to rotational wheels. The maximum frequency of the testing machine is 50Hz. A material tested was a type 304 stainless steel. In the test, two types of loading paths are employed, a proportional loading and a non-proportional loading. The former is a cyclic bending loading and the latter a combining cyclic bending and reversed torsion loading in the developed testing machine. In this study, an applicability of the testing machine is evaluated by carrying out the tests under these loading conditions.

Abstract: This paper studied the effect of the ratio between the axial tensile force and the transversal vibration loads on the fatigue behavior and failure mode of the near alpha titanium alloy TA11, to simulate the service stress state applied on the engine blades, where a large centrifugal force is superimposed with bending vibration loads. The plate-like specimens were used in the fatigue tests by a special testing device which was designed and fabricated in the present research,where the vibration loads were applied by the electro-magnetic exciters. By experiments under various multi-axial fatigue loading cases with different ratios between the axial tensile force and the transversal vibration loads, the fatigue behavior and failure modes were observed and compared. Then, the energy based fatigue criteria were applied for correlation of the test results. The fatigue properties of titanium alloy TA11 under the specialized loading conditions are characterized and discussed. In addition, the experimental observations on the vibration behavior superimposed with different magnitude of axial tensile force are also helpful for understanding the real working conditions of the engine blades.

Abstract: With modern laser beam sources welding processes can be developed, that allow the joining of otherwise barely realisable material and geometrical constellations such as dissimilar welded, thick-walled shaft-hub joints for powertrain systems. Current design recommendations do not offer solutions to account for the cyclic strength under torsional loading for welded structures. In order to bridge the gap between cost and time consuming prototype testing and laboratory tests of basic homogeneous material samples, a test system combining axial and torsional loading was used. For this purpose application oriented test parts are designed to mimic the weld seam geometry, stiffness and heat dissipation conditions of the real structural part at its best. The dissimilar joints were realised for two material combinations: cast iron GJS-600-3 with case hardened steel 16MnCr5 and 42CrMo4 with 16MnCr5. The latter combination showed only a slightly higher cyclic strength compared to the cast iron/steel combination. A systematic optimization of the laser beam welding process leads to a fatigue behaviour under multi-axial loading conditions, where the cast iron/case hardened steel combination still met the strength specification required.

Abstract: The Fatemi–Socie criterion is evaluated using the combined axial torsion fatigue testing results obtained from extensive experiments on thin-walled tubular specimens made from 304 stainless steel. The Fatemi–Socie criterion combines the maximum shear strain amplitude with a consideration of the normal stress on the critical plane. Rainflow cycle counting and Morrow’s plastic work interaction rule are used to calculate fatigue damage. The fatigue life prediction is conducted by using the maximum shear strain plane as the critical plane by considering the weight function and the maximum damage plane as the critical plane. It is concluded that the results gained by two approaches are both acceptable for the case examined.
