HOMEWORK/DOWLING-CHAPTER 11
The following problems are to be turned in on Monday of 11th week. Theses
problems are from the 4th edition; numbers in (X) are the corresponding problem in
the 3rd edition
CUMULATIVE DAMAGE

YIELD (FAILURE) CRITERIA
In design, need to know why parts fail; and, when are parts predicted
to fail.
Answer? When component stresses exceed the yield or
ultimate strength of the material? Maybe, ma

MEAN STRESS EFFECTS
So far have assumed mean stress, m , is zero.
Now introduce fatigue considerations when m 0.
Plot stresses on a m - a coordinate system.
Three equations will be used to fit data, a
