DISCOURSE ON FACTORS WHICH CONTROL FATIGUE BEHAVIOR IN HIGH YIELD LOW ALLOY STEEL STRUCTURES

In this paper the authors develop certain viewpoints which arise from experiments which have been carried out at the Naval Construction Research Establishment, to assess the low cycle fatigue properties of high yield, low alloy steel structures using standard and specially devised type tests. These relate to the way in which fatigue properties are influenced by the tensile strength and ductility; the way in which loads are applied; and the special considerations and the mode of failures peculiar to the welded connections. It is concluded that for applications which require the use of higher strength structural steels, fatigue life may be a severe limitation unless attention is paid to matters such as cleanness of steel, fabrication and means of improving resistance to fatigue crack initiation and growth.
