THE FATIGUE STRENGTH OF HIGH TENSILE STEEL WIRE CABLE SUBJECTED TO STRESS FLUCTUATIONS OF SMALL AMPLITUDE

In the fatigue tests described, the cable was subjected to stress fluctuations of small amplitude, the average stress being very near the bearing load. Fatigue failure was caused by friction, for a stress value lower than that of the fatigue strength of the wires of which the cable was made. In the field studied there was no endurance limit. /TRRL/
