Damage evolution during low cycle fatigue, creep, and their interaction behavior is actually a ductility exhaustion process in response to cyclic and static creep. In this article, a novel viscosity-based model for low cycle fatigue—creep life prediction is presented in an attempt to condition viscosity-based approaches for general use in isothermal and(More)
Low cycle fatigue–creep is the main reason for the failures of many engineering components under high temperature and cyclic loading. Based on the exhaustion of the static toughness and dissipation of the plastic strain energy during fatigue failure, a new low cycle fatigue–creep life prediction model that is consistent with the fatigue–creep damage(More)
Based on the derivation and calculation of the Corten–Dolan exponent d , a practical method of determining its value is proposed. This exponent depends not only upon the materials, but also upon the load spectrums. Therefore its value is obtained by a function which decreases with increasing stress amplitude. This exponent was investigated through analysis(More)
The inverse Gaussian process is recently introduced as an attractive and flexible stochastic process for degradation modeling. This process has been demonstrated as a valuable complement for models that are developed on the basis of the Wiener and gamma processes. We investigate the optimal design of the degradation tests on the basis of the inverse(More)
Many structures are subjected to variable amplitude loading in engineering practice. The foundation of fatigue life prediction under variable amplitude loading is how to deal with the fatigue damage accumulation. A nonlinear fatigue damage accumulation model to consider the effects of load sequences was proposed in earlier literature, but the model cannot(More)
Probabilistic life prediction of aircraft turbine disks requires the modeling of multiple complex random phenomena. Through combining test data with technological knowledge available from theoretical analyses and/or previous experimental data, the Bayesian approach gives a more complete estimate and provides a formal updating approach that leads to better(More)
