Sub cycle Corrosion fatigue Crack Growth under Variable Amplitude Loading

Abstract Corrosion fatigue has been of prime concern in railways, aerospace, construction industries and so on. Even in the case of many medical equipment, corrosion fatigue is considered to be a major challenge. The fact that even high strength materials have lower resistance to corrosion fatigue makes it an interesting area for research. The analysis of propagation of fatigue crack growth under environmental interaction and the life prediction is significant to reduce the maintenance costs and assure structural integrity. Without proper investigation of the crack extension under corrosion fatigue, the scenario can lead to catastrophic disasters due to premature failure of a structure. An attempt has been made in this study to predict the corrosio... (more)
