1. Introduction

Furthermore, the predicted fatigue life of studied steel without welds shows great comparability with experimental data. The limit value of the strain range in the notch root was estimated. Below this value of strain, the fatigue life of welded joints is infinite, theoretically.

A Practical Method to Predict Total Fatigue Life of Welded

Jan 19, 2016 · Fracture mechanics-based approach is a main method used to predict fatigue life for welded joints structures. In engineering, there are two main problems in fatigue life prediction, one is whether crack initiation life can be ignored or not, and the other one is to determine the crack size starting to propagate.

Effect of weld geometric prole on fatigue life of

2. Fatigue-life prediction in welded connections In a marine structure, the environment may consist of load cycles in the order of millions per year. Fatigue failures typically take place at sites of high stress in either the base material or weldments. Base material failures typically occur FATIGUE CRACK INITIATION LIFE PREDICTION FOR WELDED Nov 01, 1990 · Abstract Analytical procedures based on low cycle fatigue theory are used to estimate the fatigue crack initiation life (Ni) for a cruciform welded joint in mild steel under constant amplitude tensile cyclic loading; the fatigue crack initiating at the weld toe. Effects due to welding such as residual stresses, geometrical variability and changes in material properties are handled. It is


This study provides a comparison of four procedures to determine the fatigue life of steel bridges, namely the AASHTO Guide Specifications, BAR7, the Lehigh method, and fracture mechanics (LEFM). Results demonstrate that fatigue predictions made using the AASHTO Guide Specifications and LEFM are more accurate than the other two methods. Frontiers Low-Cycle Fatigue Life Prediction of Apr 13, 2021 · At the same time, the damage evolution and fatigue life were accessed by the comparison of experimental data and calculation results. The following conclusions can be drawn from the present work: Total fatigue life prediction for welded joints based on initial and equivalent crack size determination. Int. J.

Materials Free Full-Text Extremely-Low-Cycle Fatigue

The multiaxial fatigue critical plane method can be used to evaluate the extremely-low-cycle fatigue (ELCF) damage of beam-to-column welded joints in steel frameworks subjected to strong seismic activity. In this paper, fatigue damage models using structural detail parameters are studied. Firstly, the fatigue properties obtained from experiments are adopted to assess ELCF life for steel Prediction of Fatigue Life of Welded Joints Made of Fine Comparison of the Fatigue Life Prediction Model with Experimental Results At the beginning, the theoretical per -N per curve for S960QL steel was determined based on formula ( 10 ). In calculations, the values of parameters R m , E , and Z (to calculate Z x ) have been taken from Table 2 and R = 0.1 from the experiment conditions.

Review on fatigue life prediction models of welded joint

Cui et al. [ 45] also proved that the fatigue life of welded joints could be overestimated about 49% without considering the residual stress and its corresponding relaxation, and could be underestimated about 17% with considering the residual stress but neglecting its relaxation. Spot Weld Fatigue Life Prediction by Using Multiaxial Ahmet H. Ertasand and Fazl O. Sonmez [1] discussed about the fatigue life of the spot weld. Total strain life equation, Coffin-Manson equation by including the effect of elastic strain, yielded was used. As per conclusion fatigue life of spot welded joints depends on
