This comprehensive new ASTM publication examines state-of-the-art multiaxial testing techniques and methods for characterizing the fatigue and deformation behaviors of engineering materials. 25 analytical, peer-reviewed papers, written by experts from academia, industry, and government, are divided into the following sections:
Multiaxial Strength of Materials--addresses multiaxial strength, stress, and failure modes of materials.
Multiaxial Deformation of Materials--investigates constitutive relationships and deformation behavior of materials under multiaxial loading conditions.
Fatigue Life Prediction under Generic Multiaxial Loads--examines the challenging task of estimating fatigue life under general multiaxial loads.
Fatigue Life Prediction under Specific Multiaxial Loads--describes biaxial and multiaxial fatigue and life estimation under combinations of cyclic loading conditions, such as axial tension/compression, bending, and torsion.
Multiaxial Fatigue Life and Crack Growth Estimation--covers crack growth monitoring under cyclic mulitaxial loading conditions and determination of fatigue life.
Multiaxial Experimental Techniques--explores state-of-the-art experimental methods to generate mulitaxial deformation and fatigue data to develop and verify both constitutive models used to describe the flow behavior of materials and fatigue life estimation models.
