The goal of the present paper is to discuss the reliability of a strain-based multiaxial Low-Cycle Fatigue (LCF) criterion in estimating the fatigue lifetime of metallic structural components subjected to multiaxial sinusoidal loading with zero and non-zero mean value. Since it is well-known that a tensile mean normal stress reduces the fatigue life of structural components, three different models available in the literature are implemented in the present criterion in order to take into account the above mean stress effect. In particular, such a criterion is formulated in terms of strains by employing the displacement components acting on the critical plane and, then, by defining an equivalent strain related to such a plane. The Morrow model, the Smith-Watson-Topper model and the Manson-Halford model are applied to define such an equivalent strain. The effectiveness of the new formulations is evaluated through comparison with some experimental data reported in the literature, related to biaxial fatigue tests performed on metallic specimens under in- and out-of-phase loadings characterised by non-zero mean stress values.

Abstract

The goal of the present paper is to discuss the reliability of a strain-based multiaxial Low-Cycle Fatigue (LCF) criterion in estimating the fatigue lifetime of metallic structural components subjected to multiaxial sinusoidal loading with zero and non-zero mean value. Since it is well-known that a tensile mean normal stress reduces the fatigue life of structural components, three different models available in the literature are implemented in the present criterion in order to take into account the above mean stress effect. In particular, such a criterion is formulated in terms of strains by employing the displacement components acting on the critical plane and, then, by defining an equivalent strain related to such a plane. The Morrow model, the Smith-Watson-Topper model and the Manson-Halford model are applied to define such an equivalent strain. The effectiveness of the new formulations is evaluated through comparison with some experimental data reported in the literature, related to biaxial fatigue tests performed on metallic specimens under in- and out-of-phase loadings characterised by non-zero mean stress values.
