COMPUTER PREDICTION OF FATIGUE CRACK PROPAGATION UNDER RANDOM LOADING

In this paper, the results of two simulations on fatigue crack propagation under random loading are presented. First, fatigue crack propagation under random loading is simulated based on linear fracture mechanics. Second, elasto-plastic response at the crack tip is considered by the introduction of finite element method and fatigue crack propagation under random loading is simulated incorporating the effect of memory of prior load history. Only numerical results are given for aluminum alloys, but the method is applicable to any kind of material.
