Fatigue Crack Propagation in Steels under Random Loading
Search this Article
This investigation was carried out in order to clarify experimentally fatigue crack propagation in steels under stationary random fully reversed tension-compression loading. Sine wave loads and random loads with different power spectra were applied to S20C-equivalent and S35C-equivalent steel specimens under displacement-controlled and load-controlled loading. The fundamental properties of fatigue crack propagation, the effect of power spectra, and the threshold for fatigue crack propagation in steels under random loading were clarified.
