5.1 A large number of mechanical components are subjected to
loads that are not static but fluctuating or cyclic. Even a static
load causes cyclic stresses in a rotating shaft. As such we shall
discuss design of mechanical elements subjected to fluctuating
cyclic stresses.

## Fluctuating stresses are also called cyclic as they are repetitive

when plotted against time as abscissa. The shape of repetitive
stress-time curve is not important but the mean and amplitude
of stresses are; and same will be discussed.

Ultimate and yield strengths were used in the design under static
yields strengths, we shall need the strength of materials under
fluctuating stresses. It is called fatigue strength of a material
which is much lower than ultimate or yield strength.

## Classification of Cyclic Stresses

Stress-time relations show that the stresses are not static
but vary in magnitude with time. Cyclic stresses cause
fatigue failure and the objective here is to design machine
elements that do not fail due to fatigue during the specified
design life.
Broadly speaking, the cyclic stresses are classified according
to the relative magnitudes of mean stress and stress
amplitude as follows:
1
Mean stress: = ( + ) (5.1)
2
1
Stress amplitude: = ( ) (5.2)
2
Where are the maximum and minimum
stresses, respectively?

## Fatigue Strength and Endurance Limit (The S-N Diagram)

The determine the fatigue strength of materials; standard specimen is
subjected to reversed stresses in a Rotating Beam fatigue testing
machine The machine subjects the specimen to pure bending. The
specimen is very carefully machined to standard dimensions and
polished. (Fatigue-Testing machine are also available for applying
fluctuating or reversed axial stresses, torsional stress, or combined
stresses to the test specimens)
To determine the fatigue strength of a material, a number of tests are
necessary with different values of stress amplitude , mean stress
being zero in all the cases. For example, the first test with = 0.94 Sut,
Second one with = 0.85 Sut, and so on till = 0.5 Sut or so. The
number of cycles N to failure is record in each case. The observations
are plotted on a semi-log or log-log paper.
The ordinate of S-N diagram is called the fatigue strength Sf and the
number of cycle N to which it belongs.

## Low cycle and higher cycle Fatigue

Generally, the region upto 103 cycles is low cycle fatigue. Strictly
speaking Sut may be defined as - cycle fatigue, but in the S-N diagram
Sut is plotted against 100 cycles. As such on the log-log plot, line joining
(0, Su) and (3,0.9 Su) is the failure line for low cycle fatigue. Some
defense equipment is design for life in this region.
Limited cycle fatigue for finite life design is the life between 103 to 106
cycles, for which a line connecting points (3, 0.9 Su) and (6, Se) is
drawn. From this line, life of a component can be estimated.
Infinite Cycle Fatigue
When the amplitude of stress in a reversed cycle stress is less than
endurance strength Se, the life of the component is considered infinite.

## 5.2 Estimated Endurance Limit , Se

The determination of endurance limit by fatigue testing is lengthy and expensive,
but for initial failure analysis or preliminary design, a quick method for estimating
endurance in bending, shear and tensile loads is needed. On the basis of a large
number of tests, the following relations for estimating the mean endurance limit
Se are used

## 1. Rotating-beam specimen (Bending)

For Steels,
Se = 0.5 Sut Sut 1400 MPa
Se = 700 MPa Sut > 1400 MPa (5.5)

## For Cast iron and cast steels,

Se = 0.45 Sut MPa Sut 600 MPa
Se = 275 MPa Sut > 600 MPa (5.6)

## (Se = 0.4 Sut according to Bhandari)

UNIT-2: Chapter-5

## For wrought aluminum alloys (in bending)

Se = 0.4 Sut (5.7)

## For cast aluminum alloys (in bending)

Se = 0.3 Sut (5.8)

## Sse = 0.577 Se (maximum-distortion-energy theory) (5.10)

## Se = endurance limit of a standard specimen of the respective material in a

rotating beam machine.

## Sut is ultimate tensile strength of a standard tension specimen of the respective

material in tension testing machine. (Se) axial is the endurance limit of steel in push
pull type fatigue testing machine.

## It may be observed that the endurance limit of a polished specimen is being

estimated from the ultimate strength of the same material.

## Further, it should be noted the estimated or measured endurance limit is an

average or mean value from the somewhat scattered data points.

## 5.4 Endurance Strength of Machine Components

The endurance limit of a real machine component is lower than the estimated of
experimentally determined endurance limit because the size, shape, surface finish, etc
of a components are generally quite different from those of the specimens used in
testing. As such the following relationship is generally used to determine endurance
strength of real component.

Se = Ka Kb Kc Kd Ke Se (5.12)

## Se = endurance strength of a component, MPa

Se = endurance limit or endurance strength of the material of the component, MPa
Ka = surface finish factor
Kb = size factor
Kc = reliability factor
Kd = modifying factor for stress concentration
Ke = miscellaneous factor

## Surface finish factor Ka

Fig. 5.8

The surface finish factors in the figure are based on large number of
experiments on wrought steels and are not applicable to other ductile
materials like aluminum.
Cast iron is generally not used for machine components under fluctuating
loads; but if needed ka may be used as 1 because even the mirror finished.
Cast-iron specimen will have graphite flakes and other discontinuities.
Ka = 1 for cast iron (5.13)

## Size factor Kb for rotating circular parts

The diameter of a rotating-beam specimen is only 7.5 mm; machine
part having larger diameters are likely to have lower endurance
strength than Se because larger the part, greater the possibility of a
flaw in the part. Therefore the chances of fatigue failure originating
from any one of those flows are more. Thus, the endurance limit of
machine member is reduced by the size factor Kb as shown in the table

## Table 5.1 Values of Factor Kb for rotating Shafts

Diameter d (mm) Kb

d 7.5 1.00
7.5 <d 50 0.85
d > 50 0.75

Reliability Factor Kc
The published fatigue strength data has a scatter, and the SN curve is plotted
through the mean of the scatter points. It means that the endurance limit has
a reliability of 50%, i.e., 50-percent components may fail earlier than the one
million stress cyber. The standard deviation of the data points for steels is
limited to 8% of the mean value. Using this value of standard deviation,
reliability factor Kc for a desired reliably is calculated below:

## 5.5 Theoretical Fatigue Stress Concentration factor Kt

It was discussed earlier that any discontinuity (or notch) in a machine
element in the form of holes, grooves, change in diameter, etc. raises stress
near the boundary of the discontinuity. To estimate the quantum of increase,
a static or theoretical-stress concentration factor Kt used:

Kt = (5.14)

## Values of Kt for a number of discontinuities are available in data books, hand

books and other published literature.

## 5.6 Notch Sensitivity Factor, q

It has been observed that the actual stress concentration in
fatigue, Kf, is less than the theoretical stress concentration Kt.
The difference between the actual increase in stress and the
theoretical increase in stress is related by notch sensitivity factor
q as follows:
1 (5.15)
q=
1
Kf = 1 + q (Kt -1) and modifying factor Kd = 1 / Kf (5.16)

## It may be observe that if q = 0, i.e. the material is not sensitive to

notches and Kf = 1.
When the material is fully sensitive to notches, q = 1 and Kf = Kt

There are other factors such as temperature, chemical and stress

## 5.9 Failure points under fluctuating and pulsating stresses

In pulsating and fluctuating stresses, magnitude of mean stress
(m) influences the failure of a component significantly. In stress
amplitude (a) has been plotted on the ordinate and mean stress
component (m) plotted on the abscissa. The figure shows the
failure points under several combinations of m and a. It is clear
from the figure that failure occurs at a < Se and m < Syt or Sut.

Fig. 5.19

8/18/2015 RKGIT/BKG/MD-1 36
NME-501, Machine Design-1 Design for Fluctuating Loads
UNIT-2: Chapter-5

## For designing a machine element, one needs to know the

limits of combination of m and a that define the failure
criterion.
Several failure criterions have been suggested, out of
them, the following criterion will be discussed:
1. Soderberg line
2. Goodman line
3. Modified Goodman diagram
4. Gerber curve

## 5.10 Soderberg and Goodman lines (for axial and bending

stresses)
Soderberg line: a straight line joining Se on the ordinate and Syt
on the abscissa defines the soderberg line. Points falling on the
line or above the line indicate failure.
Equation for failure line may be written as

on abscissa is called the Goodman line, Points falling on or above
the line indicate failure as per this criteria.

Modified Goodman line: Also shows the yield line for a ductile material.
It is drawn joining the Syt points on both axes. It is also called the limit of first
cycle stress, because if a part yields, it has failed and there would be no
safety in fatigue. Modified Goodman diagram is defined by two straight lines-
Goodman line from Se to the point of intersection with the yield line, there
after it follows the yield line

## 5.11 Gerber Curve

Soderberg and Goodman design criterion are based on linear
relations. There are some non-linear theories based on parabolic
or elliptic curves for predicting failure under fluctuating stresses.
Gerber theory is a popular non-linear theory based on a
parabolic curve as follows:

Gerber failure curve: ( ) + =1 (5.25)

Gerber design curve: ( ) + =1 (5.26)

Soderberg and Goodman failure lines. Design curves and lines
are obtained by using a suitable value for factor of safety (fs). It

against fluctuating bending or axial stresses.

## 5.12 Fluctuating Torsional Shear Stresses

Maximum shear stress theory predicts strength in shear as
Ss = 0.50 Sy.

## This relation gives conservative values. Distortion-energy theory

predicts strength in shear as Ss = 0.577 Sy
Interestingly, experimental results available in published
literature indicate that the endurance limit of polished test
pieces in shear is related to endurance limit in bending as
follows:
Sse = 0.577 Se

## Fluctuating Torsional Shear Stresses

Let us consider a case in which the torsional shear stress has a mean torsional
shear stress and a torsional stress amplitude . A torsional fatigue
diagram using torsional shear strengths Ssy and Sse is drawn in Fig.5.24
Experimental results indicate that upto a point B on yield line torsional mean
shear stress has no effect on torsional endurance limit as shown in Fig.
5.24 by points A and B. Thereafter, the failure line follows the yield line in
torsional shear. Thus

## 5.13 Fatigue Design Under Fluctuating Combined Stresses

So far we have considered design under fluctuating stresses due to an axial
load, a bending moment or a torsional moment. However, in practice it is
common that a machine element is subjected to more than one fluctuating
load, i.e., a moment and a torque, both having mean and reversed
components.
We shall use the general equation of the distortion energy theory which is as
follows:

1
2 = [( )2 + ( )2 + ( )2 + 6 (xy2 + yz2 + zx2)] (a)
2

## , , are normal stresses in X,Y and Z directions, , , are shear

stresses in their respective planes, and is a stress which is equivalent to
three-dimensional stresses.

## Fatigue Design Under Fluctuating Combined Stresses (Contd.)

If we use principal stresses in place of normal and shear stresses in (a), then

1
2 = 2 [(1 2 )2 + (2 3 )2 + (2 3 )2 ] (b)

## For a two dimensional stress system:

= [1 2 - 1 2 +2 2 ].5 (c)

## If the principal stresses have mean and alternating components, we may

assume that
= [1m2 - 1 2 + 2m2]1/2 (5.31)

## = [1a2 - 1 2 + 2a2]1/2 (5.32)

Goodman diagrams maybe used with equation (5.31) and (5.32) for design
purpose.

Constant Torque and Stationary Bending Load
Torsional stress on an element on the surface of rotating shaft
is constant in magnitude and direction. But the same element
will have a normal stress varying from tension to
compression, and back again as the shaft rotates.

## Substituting these values in equation (a)

components, equation can be written as

shafts in such cases.

Example 5.3
A 25-mm shaft is made of 30C8, Su = 500 MPa steel and is subjected to reversed
bending. There is a step in the shaft and the theoretical stress concentration at
the step is 2.1. The notch sensitivity factor is 0.84. Determine the endurance limit
of the shaft for a 50 percent reliability if the shaft is forged.

## Ka = 0.5 (Fig. 5.8)

Kb = 0.85 (Table 5.1)
Kc = 1.0 (Table 5.2)
Kt = 2.1, q = 0.84 (Given)
Kf = 1 + q (Kt 1) = 1.0 + 0.84 (2.1 1) = 1.924
Ke = 1 assumed
Hence, Se = (0.5) (0.85) (1.0) (1 / 1.924) (1) (250) MPa = 55.2 MPa
Comment:
Calculated fatigue strength is an estimate since the surface is as forged, the
part is perhaps not so critical.
