1. Text 12.10 2. Determine the parameters in the Coffin-Manson law for the low-cycle fatigue data for Type 347 stainless steel given in Fig.12-13. 3. For the cyclic strain-strain curve in Fig.12-10, the point B corresponds to 75MPa (B) and 0.000645 (B). If f=0.30 and E=22x104 MPa, determine (a) E and p; and (b) the number of cycles to failure. (ref. example on p.391). 4. An alloy plate containing a center crack of length 2a = 0.4 mm fractures in tension at 423 MPa. The alloy is to be used for aircraft components under cyclic stress conditions where R = -0.3 and max = 150 MPa. The proposed design life is 5 x 106 cycles. What is the minimum surface crack size that must be detectable in the fabricated components using NDT (non-destructive testing) methods? The Paris law for the alloy is, da/dN = 3x10-13 (K)3 m/cycle, K in MPa m . 5. Fatigue life is usually estimated from Mansons method of universal slopes relating the fatigue life to the tensile parameters: (ref. Callister) : =

For a steel, y = 30ksi, u = 50ksi, f=0.30 and E=30Mpsi. Estimate the limit on the total cyclic strain range if the steel is to withstand 4.9x105 cycles. 6. It is observed experimentally that "static fatigue" (constant tensile stress ) in cold-worked brass in a corrosive environment is given by da/dt = AK2 where A is a constant. Show that the time-to-failure tf is given by (in terms of A, ao, and KIC), t f =

7. Text 13-6; 8. Text 13-9; 9. Text 13-11 10. The following rupture times were obtained for stress rupture tests on a steel alloy : (Text. 13-3) [Ref. S.S.Manson, et al., Trans.

In a laboratory creep experiment at 1000 oC, a steady-state creep-rate of 0.5% per hour is obtained and the specimen failed at 1000 hours. The creep mechanism for this alloy is known to be dislocation climb with an activation energy of 200 kJ/mol. Predict the creep rate at a service temperature of 600 oC and estimate the service life in hours. 12. At the test conditions in a nickel-base alloy, the average climb velocity of dislocations is v = 2 x 10-10 m/s. Estimate the power-law creep rate (climb plus glide mechanism) if D (climb-height)=0.5m, L=3m,  =bv). =1x1012 m/m3 and b = 0.25 nm (recall 13. 4140 steel bolts in a steam-pipe flange are torqued so that the initial tensile stress is o = 100 MPa. The length of the bolts remains fixed in service. At 1000 K , the steady-state, power-law creep rate in 4140 is  ss = 3 x 10-18 4 (  ss in s-1 and in MPa). The elastic modulus E = 200 GPa for 4140. What is the stress in the bolts after 1000 hrs operation?
