Abstract [en]

An engineering method based on fracture mechanics is suggested for life predictions of components of nodular cast iron. The method should be applicable to any structure containing defects which can cause crack initiation. Component testing was performed and the observed results were compared with model predictions. Fatigue crack growth data were obtained by testing on CT specimens even for load ratios R < 0. By accounting for crack closure the R-effect on the growth rates can also be effectively eliminated for this type of material.
