Fatigue life depends on fluctuating stress cycle, identified by stress amplitude

over a mean stress at a point in the component, and the number of such cycles

the product is designed for. All points of a component may not experience same

stress amplitude or same mean stress. Also, a single point may experience stress

cycles of different amplitude, for example due to cold start, warm start and hot

start or due to load change in a steam turbine casing.

Some components are subjected to more than 106

stress cycles, for example

due to flexural stress cycles of rotating components or stresses due to vibration

in static components. They fall in the category of high cycle fatigue and are

designed for infinite life by limiting stress amplitude below endurance limit

(SE)' Components subjected to pressure and temperature fluctuations, such as

due to different start-up procedures of power plant components, experience less

than 106

stress cycles. Such components are designed for finite life, based on

the stress amplitude (>SE) at critical points of the component.

For example, a turbine casing or rotor experiences zero stress, when shut

down and very high stress during start-up, when it comes in contact with steam

at high temperature and pressure. Start-up procedure for a typical 110 MW

steam turbine, from cold condition, is given in Fig. 10.5. Change of stress from

stress-free cold condition to the high stress value during transient and back to

zero stress after shut-down forms one stress cycle, with stress range (St) and the

turbine is designed for a particular number of such cold starts (nt) during its

design life of about 40-50 years. Similarly other transients like warm start, hot

start, load fluctuation due to varying demand between day and night etc .. all

give different stress ranges (S2, S3, .. ) and each of them may occur for a different

number of cycles (n2, n3, .. ).

The stress range will vary at different points of the structure, for the same

transient. Corresponding to each stress amplitude, number of cycles to cause

fatigue failure (Ni) is read from Stress amplitude (S) V s Number of cycles (N)

curve of the material (Refer Fig.lO.6, for a typical curve), assuming it acts

alone. Due to large scatter in the experimental data of S-N values from uni-axial

fluctuating load test, a factor of 2 on stress and 20 on number of cycles is used

in some codes, white preparing S-N curve of a material. Then, fatigue usage

fraction 'U' is obtained from the most widely used model (Palmgren-Miner

hypothesis, popularly known as Miner's rule), for validating safe design of a

component.

The finite element analysis gives us 6 stress components (3 normal stresses

and 3 shear stresses) at each node point of a 3-D continuum structure or 4 stress

components (3 normal stresses along axial, radial and hoop directions and 1

shear stress) in an axisymmetric analysis, while S-N curve of a material is

given for one particular stress. Usually vonMises stress or maximum principal

stress difference is used with the S-N curve. This stress value is obtained at each

point and at each time step of the transient. Stress amplitude (Si), half of stress

range, is calculated over the complete transient, consisting of many time steps.

Corresponding to this stress amplitude, number of cycles to failure (Ni) is

obtained from the S-N curve of the material and fatigue usage fraction

calculated to validate the design.
