ANALYSIS OF FATIGUE CRACK PROPAGATION IN STRESS CONCENTRATION ZONES

The making of a sound decision on the question of extending ship service life when there is fatigue damage requires that there be appropriate experimental and calculated data to predict the kinetics of crack development under structure service loads. A method is proposed that uses a generalized approach to analyzing fatigue crack development in structural stress concentration areas. The simplified model for illustrating the approach is a plate-like structural member with uniform material properties loaded under the steady- state cyclic law.
