## Fatigue crack growth rate curve

The fatigue crack growth rates (FCGR), was widely accepted to ascertain the a sigmoidal crack growth curve with three identical stages of (I) (Kth crack arrest, To obtain a fatigue crack growth curve for a particular application, it is necessary to establish reliable fatigue crack growth rate data. Typically, a cracked test The slope of the crack growth curves is da/dN which is the crack growth rate, e.g. in mm/cycle. The slope as determined along the crack growth curves is plotted in da/dN Fatigue crack growth rate. KOL. Stress intensity factor during the overload cycle. R. Stress ratio. γPOL.

There are typically tails at the upper and lower ends of the growth rate curve. The tail at the lower end for small values of ΔK (region I) approaches a vertical asymptote called the fatigue crack growth threshold, ΔK th. Crack growth does not typically occur for stress intensity ranges below the threshold. The Fatigue Crack Growth calculator allows for fatigue crack growth analysis of a cracked part. Cyclic loading is applied in the form of a stress history. The crack growth rate is calculated at each stress cycle, and the crack is grown until failure. See the instructions within the documentation for more details on performing this analysis. Fig.5.1 A typical fatigue crack growth curve In general the crack propagation rate of a given crack subjected to a constant amplitude loading depends primarily on the range of stresses in the fatigue cycle (σ max, σ min), and on the crack length. It is also influenced by the stress ratio R = σ min /σ max. To obtain a fatigue crack growth curve, it is necessary to establish reliable fatigue crack growth rate data. Typically, a cracked test specimen is subjected to a constant amplitude cyclic load with a remote stress range given by: Typical constant amplitude crack growth data are shown in Figure 1. Fatigue Crack Growth Curves Typical constant amplitude crack propagation data are shown in Fig. 2. The crack length, a, is plotted versus the corresponding number of cycles, N, at which the crack was measured. Figure 2. Constant amplitude crack growth data. As shown, most of the life of the component is spent while the crack length is relatively small. Denoting the fatigue life of region “1” as N f 1 under stable propagation condition the crack growth rate can be expressed as (1) d a d N = L f N f 1 where L f is a length introduced to calculate the fatigue life and to determine the base growth curve.

## Since the stress-strain field near a crack tip is uniquely determined by the stress intensity factor, fatigue crack growth rates can be correlated to ΔK and Fig.5.1 shows a typical plot which can be divided into three zones; threshold, stable crack growth and instability.
