Unified risk analysis of fatigue failure in ductile alloy components during all three stages of fatigue crack evolution process.

Abstract

Statistical fatigue life of a ductile alloy specimen is traditionally divided into three stages, namely, crack nucleation, small crack growth, and large crack growth. Crack nucleation and small crack growth show a wide variation and hence a big spread on cycles versus crack length graph. Relatively, large crack growth shows a lesser variation. Therefore… (More)
