Identification of Fatigue Constants by Means of 3D Method

Open access


The conventional method for evaluation of the fatigue constants uses one set of experimental data from strain-controlled uniaxial fatigue tests. However, these constants do not ensure the compatibility conditions. The new 3D method retains the mathematical and physical relationships between curves considered. This paper presents a way of implementation of the identification procedure and shows results obtained for three types of materials.
