    Abstract

    Regression models, based on linear elastic fracture mechanics, are used to interpret the effect of stress ratio on fatigue crack growth rate in 7075-T6 aluminum alloy. It is shown that fatigue crack growth rate can be related to range and maximum values of stress-intensity factor. Statistical techniques are used to examine the error which may accumulate when regression equations are used to predict crack growth versus cycles curves.
