An enhancement of the current design concepts for the

Abstract The consideration of residual stresses in fatigue-loaded welds is currently done only qualitatively without reliable knowledge about their real distribution, amount and prefix. Therefore, the tools which enable a more or less unsafe consideration in design concepts are mainly based on unsafe experiences and doubtful assumptions. Since the use of explicitly determined residual stresses

Application of Advanced Fatigue Damage Parameters in

proportional loading may result in non-conservative fatigue design as longer lives are assessed than recorded in experiments. Besides, no general fatigue hypothesis is verified for complex fatigue loading. Figure 1:Different concepts to perform fatigue analysis This paper presents a comparison of different fatigue Compression Fatigue Testing Setups for CompositesA Sep 01, 2020 · Another antibuckling guide using surface contact for fatigue testing is presented by Tost et al. Instead of using platelike specimens, the researchers use a thickness and width tailored specimen to reduce stress concentrations. The specimen design is optimized for fatigue testing of unidirectional glassfiber reinforced epoxy materials.

Durability and Fatigue Life Prediction with FEA Simulation

For metallic components, solutions for fatigue analysis from FEA have existed commercially for many years and have become an essential part of maturing and qualifying design concepts in many industrial sectors. Using modern multiaxial strain based fatigue methods enable us to simulate the fatigue analysis of elastomer materials and Rubber. FATIGUE FAILURE AND TESTING METHODS2.2 Different phases of fatigue life Microscopic investigation in the 20th century has revealed that the nucleation of fatigue cracks occurs at a very early stage of fatigue life. The crack starts as a slip band within a grain. The cyclic slip occurs as a result of cyclic shear stress, this slip leads to formation

Fatigue Design for Axially Loaded Grouted Connections of

Apr 26, 2012 · Within a national research project fatigue tests of grouted joints were carried out and used for the benchmark of numerical models. With the results of stress calculations from the numerical model, different local concepts for the fatigue design of steel members were implemented and evaluated. Fatigue Failure of runway beams due to wheel loadsthe corresponding investigation cannot be presented further, for reasons of limited paper length. 3.3 Fatigue strengths The fatigue strength evaluation occurred using the aforementioned alternative statistical method. This was initially done on the basis of the nominal stress concept according to Eurocode 3 Part 1-9 (1) and

Fatigue design of aluminium welded joints by the local

Abstract The investigations were carried out with three different types of MIG-welded joints of the two aluminium alloys AlMg4.5Mn (AW-5083) and AlMgSi1 T6 (AW-6082 T6) under fully reversed and pulsating axial loading. The evaluation of the results showed that the local stress concept using the fictitious notch radius of r f =1.0 mm can be applied to aluminium welded joints from plates with Fatigue design of thermoplastic laser welds SpringerLinkJul 24, 2014 · Investigation 1influence of weld line geometry and laser weld process. In this investigation, different weld line geometries (flat-shaped, U-shaped, V-shaped) welded with the CW-TWIST® process and the QSLW process are compared with respect to the static strength. In Fig. 3, the results of static tension tests are displayed. It should be mentioned that, for QSLW, the weld line

Fatigue design of welded doublesided Tjoints and

Different fatigue assessment concepts, relating the fatigue life time and a fatigue strength criterion using a resistance curve, have been developed over time aim-ing to obtain more accurate life time estimates, balanced with criterion complexity and (computational) efforts. The fatigue strength criteria have evolved from global to Introduction to fatigue design to BS EN 1993-1-99:2008. Stresses in welds are calculated using a different formula from that given in BS EN 1993-1-8 for weld design, as indicated in Section 5(6). For certain details shown in Table B.1 of EC3-1-9, fatigue resistance can be determined using the geometrical (hot spot) stress method. Stress ranges for fatigue design are based on

Special Issue "Technological Aspects in Fatigue Design of

Hence, this Special Issue focuses on the fatigue design of metallic structures considering the influence of technological aspects. Approaches based on local stress or strain as well as fracture-mechanics-based concepts are applicable, considering local manufacturing-process-dependent characteristics such as microstructure, hardness, porosity Statistical summaries of fatigue data for design purposes Statistical summaries of fatigue data for design purposes Two methods are discussed for constructing a design curve on the safe side of fatigue data. Both the tolerance interval and equivalent prediction interval (EPI) concepts provide such a curve while accounting for both the distribution of the estimators in small samples and the data scatter.


Traditional concepts for fatigue design vary from deterministic design methods, which can be used in process to evaluate the quality of the fatigue damage prediction using different design methods. The experiments, numerical investigations or parametric equations.
