Book Description

This book presents unified fatigue life prediction equations for a low/medium/high cycle fatigue of metallic materials, relevant to plain materials and notched components.

The book enables the reader to tackle the failure problem of notched components and presents a new type of S-N equation. Detailing material intensity parameters, which are dependent on both the uniaxial material strength and the stress multiaxial parameter, the book then looks at the failure condition of these materials. Covering the Wöhler Curve Method, which is most suited to low-cycle fatigue life analysis of metallic materials, the book also includes chapters on mechanical quantities, linear-elastic stress analysis and multiaxial fatigue.

The book will be of interest to professionals working in the field of fatigue, fracture, stress and metallic materials.
