    Abstract

    Effect of fatigue loading on the residual strength of a unidirectional titanium matrix composite, SCS6/Ti-6-4, was investigated. The composite was fatigued isothermally at 427°C under load-controlled mode with an applied maximum stress of 900 MPa up to a certain fraction of the fatigue life, and then loaded monotonically to failure to obtain the residual strength. Two frequencies, 1 Hz and 0.01 Hz, were used to examine the time-dependent characteristics of the fatigue loading. Substantially different failure mechanisms and fatigue lives were observed, but the reduction in strength as a percentage of fatigue life was similar for the two cases. Practically no reduction in strength occurred until 75% of the expected fatigue life.
