The topics include fundamentals of fatigue crack initiation and propagation, simulating fatigue cracks in health beam models for improved identification, fractographic observations on the mechanisms of fatigue crack growth in aluminum alloys, a mechanistic approach to fatigue initiation and damage propagation in fiber metal laminates and hybrid materials, and the influence of microstructural features on the propagation of microstructurally short fatigue cracks in structural steels.
With the fracture mechanics approach, fatigue life of engineering part can be predicted by fatigue crack growth (FCG) curve, i.
LTI), a full-service materials testing, nondestructive testing and metrology lab, recently introduced fatigue crack growth testing as one of their many mechanical testing services.
Among their topics are analyzing material properties for the numerical simulation of fatigue crack growth under variable amplitude loading, the self-affine crack pattern in filter paper sheets, applying the boundary element method to visco-plastic analysis, corrosion degradation in pipeline carbon steels subject to geothermal plant conditions, surface stress concentration analysis of shot-peened aluminum alloys, the mechanical behavior of ceramic and polymer composites reinforced with volcanic ashes, and a new theoretical approach to the fracture ductility of steels and its relation to microscopy structural characterization.
This paper focuses on a review of the fatigue crack growth response of pipeline steels when exposed to gaseous hydrogen environments.
Current paper presents the already accomplished achievements as well as the analysis of further investigations by determining the limits of the fatigue crack growth threshold at very low speeds.
So, for dynamic fatigue crack growth, one may write:
One of the basic tasks of qualitative fractography is the reconstitution of fatigue crack growth history from the morphology of the crack surface.
