INFLUENCE OF YIELD STRENGTH AND FRACTURE TOUGHNESS ON FATIGUE DESIGN PROCEDURES FOR STRUCTURAL STEELS

The article provides guidelines for the use of thick-section steels in fatigue-loaded structures. Steels ranging in yield strength from 30 to 300-ksi are divided into three groups on the basis of their fracture behavior. The probable mode of failure, the important factors affecting both fatigue and fracture, and fatigue design procedures are discussed for each group. References are made, e.g., to work on aircraft materials, pressure vessels, nuclear reactor piping, and influence of a seawater environment.
