    Abstract

    Tests are described which measure the effect of compression overload on fatigue crack initiation and growth from a 0.1-mm-radius notch in alloy steel KIc specimens.

    Other tests are described which measure the effect of tension overload on fatigue crack initiation and growth from a 3.4-mm-root-radius notch in similar specimens.

    The effect of overload on the number of cycles required for crack growth is described for both types of tests in relation to a residual stress model.

    Keywords:

    overload, fatigue cracking, residual stress, notch, fracture mechanics
