This investigation deals with the fatigue properties and material parameters for a silicon alloyed nodular cast iron. The material follows the Swedish standard SS 140725. The objectives for this investigation where to evaluate properties of the material in a fracture mechanic sense of view. In this part, the attention was paid to the basic fracture mechanic properties, i.e. da/dN-curves and Pan's law parameters. It also include R-dependence behaviour evaluated for R-values from R= 0 and R= 0.8. The main incitement for using the closure free approach is that it produces the fastest crack propagation rate that can be found at given conditions and load levels. This investigation of nodular iron will be followed by subsequent parts. The investigation in total is a part of the nordic project "Cast Design 2005".
