Local strain based approaches have been used frequently for the prediction of crack initiation life of notched components. Limitations of the transferability of smooth specimen fatigue data to the notch root as well as cumulative damage problems have been handled by use of fatigue notch factors and consideration of some damage contribution below the fatigue limit. This type of a conventional approach has been applied as a reference case for the present study. Based on the mechanics of local… CONTINUE READING
