Unformatted text preview: ME 382 Lecture 28 24/iii/06 1 E FFECT OF VARIABLE STRESSES ON FATIGUE LIFE Loading history may not be uniform To estimate approximate life-times use Palmgren 1920 1 2 4 3 4 ! Miner 1945 1 2 3 Rule : N i N f i i " = 1 (often called Miners rule) where, N i = # cycles in load block i N fi = # cycles to failure for constant cycling of type in load block i Note : All these fatigue laws are empirical . They do not always work, and should be used with caution! Examples of fatigue calculations Example 1 A loading sequence consists of Block 1. 20 cycles ( m = 0 MPa, a = 200 MPa) Block 2. 5 cycles ( m = 0 MPa, a = 250 MPa) How many times can this be repeated until failure using a 2024 Al alloy for which ! a N f 0.102 = 839 MPa and Y = 303 MPa Step (i): Block 1: m = 0 OK to use Basquins Law max = 200 MPa; min = -200 MPa Check for yield: ! H < ! Y no yield Block 2: m = 0 OK to use Basquins Law max = 250 MPa; min = -250 MPa Check for yield: !...
