Part 1 – Types of stress and loading, stress ratio, endurance strength, design factors Part 2 – Failure theories E. R. Evans, Jr./ R. Michael MET 210W

Static Load Stress Stress Ratio, R = 1.0
F and P are applied and remain constant Stress Stress Ratio, R = 1.0 Time

Dynamic Stress: Loads that vary during normal service of the product produce dynamic stress. Dynamic stress can be cyclic or random. High cycle fatigue – part subject to millions of stress cycles. Examples: Parts subject to dynamic stress?

Cyclic loads produce cyclic stress which can lead to mechanical fatigue failure:
Mechanical Fatigue = The progressive and localized structural damage that occurs when a material is subjected to cyclic loading. The cyclic stress is well below tensile, Su and yield, Sy , strengths!

Types of Cyclic Stress:
Repeated and Reversed (i.e. RR Moore, rotating shafts, etc.) – mean stress = 0. Fluctuating stress (mean stress not zero): Tensile mean stress (can cycle between tension and compression or all tension) Compressive mean stress (can cycle between tension and compression or all compression) Repeated, one-direction stress

Definitions: = Alternating stress = Mean stress = R value:
R = 0, repeated and one direction, i.e. stress cycles from 0 to max value. R =-1, Fully reversed (R-R Moore)

1.Repeated & Reversed Stress
an element subjected to a repeated and alternating tensile and compressive stresses. Continuous total load reversal over time Demo: Switch to Excel

1.Repeated and Reversed Stress
The average or mean stress is zero.

All stresses above are repeated and reversed (R = -1)
Cyclic loading. (a) Very low amplitude acoustic vibration. (b) High-cycle fatigue: cycling well below general yield, sy. (c) Low cycle fatigue: cycling abovegeneral yield (but below the tensile strength sts). All stresses above are repeated and reversed (R = -1)

Fatigue Testing Bending tests
R-R More = Spinning bending elements – most common. Fast, cost effective, pure bending stress See:

Fatigue Testing Bending tests
Sontag = Constant stress cantilever beams Good for flat stock (sheets) Get shear stress in addition to bending stress. Top View Specimen

Fatigue Testing Test Data Stress, s (ksi)
Number of Cycles to Failure, N Data from R. B. Englund, 2/5/93

Endurance Strength = 0.50(Su)
Endurance strength is the stress level that a material can survive for a given number of load cycles. Endurance limit is the stress level that a material can survive for an infinite number of load cycles. Estimate for Wrought Steel: Endurance Strength = 0.50(Su) Most nonferrous metals (aluminum) do not have an endurance limit.

Representative Endurance Strengths
Estimated endurance strength of steel is about 0.50 * Su

2. Fluctuating Stress When an element experiences alternating stress, but the mean stress is NOT zero. Load varies between P and Q over time

2.Fluctuating Stress Example
Bending of Rocker Arm Valve Spring Force Valve Open Valve Closed Tension in Valve Stem Valve Closed Valve Spring Force Valve Open RBE 2/1/91 Adapted from R. B. Englund

Types of Fluctuating Stress:

Tensile Stress w/ Tensile Mean
Case 1:

Partially Reversed w/ Tensile Mean
Case 2: smax is tensile and smin is compressive

Partially Reversed w/ Compressive Mean
Case 3: smax is tensile and smin is compressive

Compressive Stress w/ Compressive Mean
Case 4: smax and smin are both compressive

Repeated – One Direction Stress
Case 5:

Example of the Effect of Stress Ratio on Endurance Strength of a Material
Reversed is the worst case and is the case used to determine the endurance strength of materials (RR Moore, etc) Fluctuating stress has less effect on endurance strength than reversed Mott, Fig. 5-11, Pg. 180

Stages of Fatigue: Micro structural changes – nucleation of permanent damage (mm) Creation of microscopic cracks (mm) Growth and coalescence of cracks into dominant crack (striations). Stable crack growth (Beach marks) Instability and rapid failure (area goes down, stress goes up eventually exceeding tensile strength).

Stages of Fatigue: Micro structural changes – nucleation of permanent damage (mm) Creation of microscopic cracks (mm) These two steps = crack initiation = 99% of the total life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Key: prevent cracks from forming at surface!!!!!!!!!!

fail in fatigue at stresses well below the tensile strength.
The endurance limit plotted against the tensile strength. Almost all materials fail in fatigue at stresses well below the tensile strength.
