Abstract

Triaxiality of stress affects damage and failure of ductile metals. In mechanical components, triaxiality increases in the proximity of a notch, or, at the microstructural level, due to inclusions or voids. In this work, the effect of triaxiality on the LCF of ductile cast iron is investigated by a multilevel approach, homogenizing the response of a microstructural model which feeds a notched specimen. Moving from micro- to macro-scale, results indicate that triaxiality shorten the fatigue life. Thus, the notch effect on fatigue life of cast iron can be explained in terms of the combined effects of microstructure and applied triaxiality.
