Title:Past work on fatigue of metals in high temperature field
Author(s):Dolan, Thomas J.
Subject(s):Metal Fatigue
High Temperature Fatigue
Abstract:A review is made of the principal concepts of high temperature fatigue behavior of metals as obtained from laboratory investigations. The interaction between time-dependent creep, and cycle-dependent fatigue phenomena apparently results in a rate of progressive damage which may be quite different from that predicted from simple superposition of effects obtained in separate tests. In evaluating the significance of data from high temperature fatigue tests, the following factors must be given careful consideration: (a) the frequency of repetition of the stress cycle; (b) the metallurgical instability of most metals at high temperature; (c) the influence of surface effects (erosion, oxidation, or chemical changes); (d) the accentuation of time-dependent creep caused by the superposition of a mean or steady stress; and (e) the lack of knowledge regarding the reduction of fatigue strength caused by “stress raisers”. It is concluded that fundamental information is needed on the nature of the phenomena limiting the life of a metal in high temperature fatigue before accurate methods can be evolved for prediction of useful service life of specific components.
