Fatigue Failure Occurs when stresses are changing throughout the life of a part. _______________________ starts with a crack that propagates until a catastrophic failure occurs. This usually begins at a manufacturing defect or stress concentration that is subjected to tensile stresses for part of its load cycle.

Fatigue-Failure Models Stress-Life - cyclic stresses are kept below fatigue strength or endurance limit. Most widely used. Strain-Life - complicated not often used. _________________ - sometimes used, gaining favor especially in the aircraft and aerospace industry.

Fully Reversed Failure Criteria Most data comes from R. R. Moore rotating-beam test. Highly polished specimen of 0.3 inches in diameter is subjected to pure bending stresses that are alternated by rotating the specimen. Rotation is at 1725 rpm. Takes 1/2 day to reach 10 6 cycles.
