Fatigue Crack Growth in Commercial Steel
In this work, the fatigue crack propagation behaviour of commercial steel sheet specimens containing a circular hole, under uniaxial loading conditions at room temperature is investigated.
The experimental data have been analysed in terms of variability of m and C. The results are presented in the form of power relationship between the crack growth rate and the stress intensity factor range.
