A computer program was developed for data acquisition and control of axial-torsional fatigue experiments at NASA-Lewis Research Center. The multitasked, interrupt-driven program was written in PASCAL and assembler. This program is capable of dual-channel control and six-channel data acquisition. It can be utilized to perform in-phase and out-of-phase axial-torsional isothermal fatigue or deformation experiments. The program was successfully used to conduct in-phase axial-torsional fatigue experiments on 304 stainless steel at room temperature and on Hastelloy X at 800°C. This paper describes the details of the software and gives some of the results generated to date.
