Abstract [en]

 In this paper an investigation of multiaxial stress based criteria and evaluation methods is presented. The criteria are used with the point, gradient and volume methods. The purpose is to determine the combination of criteria and methods that is best suited for design against the fatigue limit. The evaluation is based on elastic FE-analysis of 15 geometries for which the fatigue limit loads are known. The point method is based on the maximum values of the fatigue stress in each specimen. With the gradient method, the fatigue stress is adjusted with the relative or absolute gradient of the fatigue stress itself. With the volume method, a statistical size effect is considered, by use of a weakest link integral. Thus, the probability of fatigue depends on the fatigue stress distribution. Also, the gradient and volume methods are combined. The results show that the point and gradient methods are not good for prediction of the fatigue limit. It is recommended to use the volume method in fatigue design. It is accurate enough for prediction of the fatigue limit, straightforward to use and easy to interpret. The choice of method is much more important than the choice of criteria.

Abstract [en]

Several fatigue criteria were evaluated with experimental fatigue test data. The fatigue tests contained many different geometries with different degrees of stress concentration. It was concluded that the differences between the criteria were neglectable when compared to the differences between the specimens. The stress concentrations with the stress gradients and sizes of the highly stresses volumes that resulted were very important. In order to understand this, gradient and volume methods were investigated. The gradient methods showed some improvement over the strictly local evaluation first attempted. The volume method, a weakest link application with a Weibull distribution of the fatigue strength, yielded results useable for actual design situations. The volume method is strongly recommended and the choice of criterion does not seem to be very important.
