Application of a small-timescale fatigue, crack-growth model to the plane stress/strain transition in predicting the lifetime of a tunnel-boring-machine cutter head. Engineering Failure Analysis, 2017, 71:11-30. Bayesian estimation of instantaneous frequency reduction Abstract When a train passes along prestressed concrete (PC) bridges, crack opening reduces the girder stiffness, providing important indicators for the practical evaluation of bridge performance. However, this phenomenon is difficult to detect in the free vibrations induced by trains or via hammer tests as these vibrations have very small amplitudes. Moreover, although the bridge under a
spectral elastodynamic methodology of Geubelle and Rice (1995). They model failure by a displacement- weakening cohesive model, which corresponds in the singular crack limit to crack growth at a critical fracture energy. Confirmation that crack front waves with properties like in our simulation do exist has Ct-integral evaluationFor small-scale creep (that is, when elastic strains dominate almost everywhere in the specimen except in a small zone that grows around the crack tip), K I governs crack growth initiation. If, however, the creep zone becomes large compared to the specimen size and the elastic strains small compared to the creep strains, C * is the appropriate DOT/FAA/AR-97/2, I Proceedings of the Office of Engineering Fracture Parameters for Bulging Cracks in Pressurized Unstiffened Curved Panels, J.

Microcracks are a common metallic defect, resulting in degradation of material properties. In this paper, specimens with different fatigue microcracks were detected by eddy current pulsed thermography (ECPT). Signal processing algorithms were investigated to improve the detectability and sensitivity; principal component analysis (PCA) and Tucker decomposition were used to compare the Evaluation of Different Crack Growth Retardation Models In this study, validities of different crack growth retardation models existing in the literature are evaluated by performing fatigue crack growth experiments. Compact tension specimens made from rolled Al-7075 plates with L-T crack orientation are used. Fatigue Analysis of a Bicycle ForkThe analytical model and experimental setup are based on the ASTM F2273-03 standard for bending fatigue testing. Further validation of the failure mode/location was completed by fractographically examining the failed forks to determine the crack initiation site and evaluate crack growth rates at various stages. After validation, the FEA model was
Notice that the crack initially grows very slowly, but the growth accelerates (i.e., da/dN increases) as the crack size increases. The reason for this acceleration in growth is that the growth rate is dependent on the stress intensity factor at the crack tip, and the stress intensity factor is dependent on the crack size, a.As the crack grows the stress intensity factor increases, leading to Fatigue of ium Welds:Models for Assessment of Defect The models were based on parametric formulae for the stress intensity factor for elliptic cracks in finite thickness plates. Coupons from TIG-welded titanium pipe were fatigue tested, and initial defects were identified and sized by Scanning Electron Microscopy. The test data was used for evaluation of the fracture mechanics models. Initiation and growth behaviour of small internal fatigue The internal crack growth rates were lower than 10 10 m/cycle, and extremely slow rates ranging from 10 13 to 10 11 m/cycle were measured in a lower K regime below 5 MPam. The internal crack growth rate closely matched that of surface cracks in a high vacuum, and the reason for the very long life of internal fatigue fractures was
Two different approaches, i.e. fracture mechanics approach (based on K and J) and analytical model based on Manson-Coffin law, have been analyzed in order to define a model able to predict the crack growth rate for high constant strain amplitudes. Finally, a new analytical model able to predict the crack growth rates is presented. Plane Strain Crack Growth Models for Fatigue Crack Growth Fatigue crack growth rate data from center-cracked panels using Newman's crack closure model, from compact specimens using Eason 's R-ratio eion, and from bend specimens using the model discussed in this paper are all shown to fall along the same straight line (on log-log paper) when plotted versus K eff, even though crack closure Evaluation of crack growth rate and growth model of rate and fracture surface morphologies, a quantitative model describing a crack growth mechanism were developed considering the reversible plastic zone size at a crack tip. In addition, the crack growth rate of UFG copper was evaluated by applying the small-crack growth raw. Keywords:fatigue, surface damage, fine grains, copper, crack propagation.
