This article presents an overview of fatigue crack nucleation from the point of view of the material microstructure and its evolution during cycling. It describes the sites of microcrack nucleation at the free surfaces. The article discusses the relation of dislocation structures and surface relief and reviews the mechanisms of crack nucleation.

A shape-memory alloy is an alloy that can be deformed when cold but returns to its pre-deformed ("remembered") shape when heated. It may also be called memory metal, memory alloy, smart metal, smart alloy, or muscle wire. [citation needed]Parts made of shape-memory alloys can be lightweight, solid-state alternatives to conventional actuators such as hydraulic, pneumatic, and motor-based . The stored energies for fatigue crack nucleation determined for Ni alloy RS5 and ferritic steel and were found to be 13, J/m2 and J/m2 respectively, showing very good consistency with the corresponding Griffith fracture energies of 48, J/m2 for Ni alloy and J/m2 for ferritic microstructural variations are shown to.

An improvement of this situation may be obtained by using the effective values of the cyclic K and J, but still deviations may occur due to non-stationary closure in the growth of small fatigue cracks.

Nucleation of cracks in high and low strain metal fatigue by H. McArthur Download PDF EPUB FB2

Over the last 50–60 years there have been numerous investigations of fatigue crack nucleation in high strength aluminium alloys, e.g. [19–31]. In some of the earlier work there was an understandable tendency to focus on crack nucleation and development along slip bands [19–23], and it was not recognised that fatigue cracks could nucleate.

Stages of fatigue. Historically, fatigue has been separated into regions of high cycle fatigue that require more than 10 4 cycles to failure where stress is low and primarily elastic and low cycle fatigue where there is significant plasticity.

Experiments have shown that low cycle fatigue is also crack growth. Fatigue failures, both for high and low cycle, all follow the same basic steps. The thesis reviews the literature concerning the high- and low-strain fatigue which is pertinent to the nucleation of cracks during cyclic stressing.

The methods of investigating the crack nucleation process are discussed with the disadvantages of each method : Hugh McArthur.

These metrics, which are either strain, stress-strain or energy-based, represent driving forces for fatigue crack nucleation and limited microstructural short crack growth [18, 19,22,23].

In. The latter has been found to be an important parameter in the nucleation of intergranular cracks in polycrystals subjected to high strain fatigue, whereby primary slip bands with long slip lengths.

While just a few experimental studies on the low cycle fatigue performance of AA exist, to the best of the author’s knowledge, this is the first study to examine the fatigue crack nucleation and microstructurally small crack growth mechanisms of AA through both experimental and numerical methods.

From previous observations of the surfaces of metals cycled in high strain fatigue, the mechanism of crack nucleation is considered a plastic instability phenomenon.

A model for crack nucleation based on this conclusion is now developed quantitatively and a simple relationship between the number of cycles to nucleate a crack and the applied, plastic, strain range thus predicted. Some cracks can grow further either by linking with existing cracks or by nucleation of new elementary cracks ahead of the crack tip.

Crack growth rates of individual cracks fluctuate considerably but for each strain amplitude, which results in a saturated plastic strain amplitude, a crack growth rate of an equivalent crack can be established. nucleating and growing a fatigue crack to a length at which it can be detected.

The range of effective stress intensity factor, that is, the idea of crack closure allows the growth of fatigue cracks to be rationalized. The behavior of small cracks is in many respects quite different from long cracks. A crystal plasticity model is developed to predict the fatigue crack nucleation of polycrystalline materials, in which the accumulated dislocation dipoles are considered to be the origin of damage.

To describe the overall softening behavior under cyclic loading, a slip system-level dislocation density-related damage model is proposed and implemented in the finite element analysis with.

The gages having the best resolution, i.e. in ( mm) and in ( mm), are evidenced. To improve the crack initiation detection both standard strain gage and specific crack detection gages are available (Figures 7 and 8) Figure 5: Datasheet of Vishay crack propagation gages A crack growth equation is used for calculating the size of a fatigue crack growing from cyclic loads.

The growth of fatigue cracks can result in catastrophic failure, particularly in the case of aircraft. A crack growth equation can be used to ensure safety, both in the design phase and during operation, by predicting the size of cracks. grain direction. Fatigue crack propagation test­ ing usually involves constant-load-amplitude cy-~ 10 -l l-~" c ~ Cycles to failure Fig.

Crack length is measured as a. too little metal remaining to support the allied load. Tensile stresses nucleate and grow fatigue cracks. Compressive stresses resist nucleation and growth.

Fatigue analysis and procedures during design can be difficult for multiple reasons. First there are two types of fatigue – high and low cycle.

In high-cycle (HC) fatigue there are many. The main crack-propagation mechanisms occurred either by void nucleation in the high-density region near the crack tip or by fatigue cleavage of the atomic bonds in the crack plane.

Fatigue crack growth at grain boundaries was also studied. For high misorientation angle grain boundaries, the crack path deviated while moving from one grain to. This article describes research that investigated the ability of a carbon nanotube (CNT) sensor to detect and monitor fatigue crack initiation and propagation in metal structures.

The sensor consists of a nonwoven carrier fabric with a thin film of CNT that is bonded to the surface of a structure using an epoxy adhesive. The carrier fabric enables the sensor to be easily applied over large.

Thus crack nucleationmechanisms vary depending on the type of metal under consideration. Words such as crack “initiation,” “formation,” and “nucleation,” have been used interchangeably throughout the engineering community to describe the early stages of the fatigue damage process. In this book.

The increase of the local plastic strain with cycles of loading is calculated. The local plastic shear strain, positive in one slice and negative in the other, reaches per cent at the free surface in a few hundred cycles.

These large strains clearly cause the start of an extrusion or intrusion and fatigue crack nucleation.

Crack nucleation mechanisms in two types of cold work tool steels were evaluated under monotonic and cyclic loading conditions.

The effect of the microstructural constituents: the primary alloy carbides and the tempered martensite matrix, and their interaction, was identified through fractographic analysis and determination of mechanical properties such as the bending strength, σR, the.

The process of fatigue crack nucleation in metallic materials is reviewed placing emphasis in results derived for pure FCC metals with wavy slip behavior. The relationship between Persistent Slip Bands (PSB`s) and crack initiation will be examined for both single crystals and polycrystals, including the conditions for inter- and transgranular crack nucleation and their connection to type of.

They are, however, known to form fatigue cracks near coherent twin boundaries (low energy configuration grain boundaries separating twin and .The mechanisms associated with fatigue-crack propagation in brittle materials, such as monolothic and composite ceramics and intermetallics, are quite distinct from those com-monly encountered in metal fatigue; moreover, their crack-growth rate (da=dN)behavior displays a markedly higher sensitivity to the applied stress intensity (K) than is.
