Low-Cycle Axial Fatigue Behavior of Mild Steel


A general hypothesis that describes the cumulative effect of plastic deformations on the low-cycle fatigue behavior of metals is presented and verified with results of a variety of tests on steel specimens. Limited correlations with existing test data from other low-cycle fatigue tests on aluminum-alloy specimens indicate that it may be possible also to extend this hypothesis to metals other than steel.
