Instructional Objectives
At the end of this lesson, the students should be able to understand
Design of components subjected to low cycle fatigue; concept and necessaryformulations.
Design of components subjected to high cycle fatigue loading with finite life;concept and necessary formulations.
Fatigue strength formulations; Gerber, Goodman and Soderberg equations.
3.4.1 Low cycle fatigue
This is mainly applicable for short-lived devices where very large overloads mayoccur at low cycles. Typical examples include the elements of control systems inmechanical devices. A fatigue failure mostly begins at a local discontinuity andwhen the stress at the discontinuity exceeds elastic limit there is plastic strain.The cyclic plastic strain is responsible for crack propagation and fracture.Experiments have been carried out with reversed loading and the true stress-strain hysteresis loops are shown in
. Due to cyclic strain theelastic limit increases for annealed steel and decreases for cold drawn steel. Lowcycle fatigue is investigated in terms of cyclic strain. For this purpose we considera typical plot of strain amplitude versus number of stress reversals to fail for steelas shown in
