The Analysis of Fatigue Crack Growth Rate Data
The analytical variables associated with the characterization of fatigue crack growth rate performance are discussed and the influence of these variables on predicted cyclic life is illustrated. It is shown that the analytical techniques chosen to process laboratory test results and to develop upper-bound design information can have a significant effect on subsequent life predictions. The development of an optimum methodology for evaluating and utilizing fatigue crack growth data is also considered.
