When do small fatigue cracks propagate and when are they arrested?
July 15-20, 2018
Mainly the role of the following parameters is treated:
- material (steels, Al-alloys, Cu – heat treatment),
- kind of loading (stress range, R-ratio, mode I, mixed mode loading, constant and variable amplitudes, 10 Hz, 20 kHz)
- environment (vacuum, humid air at 20 °C, dry air at 90 °C, aqueous solution with different Cl --concentration
