ASTM E647 – Measurement of Fatigue Crack Growth Rates da/dN

E — 11 loaded. The effect can be signi?

In such cases, additional steps to provide astn between the specimen and test frame may be necessary. These are only general, comparative guidelines. This is particularly true for deep edge-notched specimens such as the C Twhich can display signi? For some materials, it is possible to use fractographic measurements to develop a relationship of crack aspect ratio as a function of crack size that is representative of all small cracks in the material r647 Non-conducting materials may also be tested using the electric potential method by?

Additional validity requirements may be included in the specimen annexes.

ASTM E – 15 Standard Test Method for Measurement of Fatigue Crack Growth Rates

NOTE 2—The machined notch 2an shall be centered to within For some materials, particularly ferromagnetic specimens, this skin effect can be signi? As a result, crack branching, or bifurcating, may be a source of variability in measured fatigue crack growth rate data.

During variable amplitude loading, crack growth rates can be 6 Subcommittee E In addition, routing the voltage measurement leads away from the motors, transformers, or other devices which produce strong magnetic? Precise measurements typically Compliance is calculated by? Steady-state nearthreshold data, when applied to service loading histories, may result in non-conservative lifetime estimates, particularly for small cracks Scatter—Because of the low level signals which must be measured with either the DC or AC current methods, a number of procedures should be followed to improve voltage measurement precision.


Knowledge of these effects can be an important consideration in selecting test parameters. The understanding of the role of the closure process is essential to such phenomena as the behavior of small cracks and the transient crack growth rate behavior during variable amplitude loading. Aggressive test environments may require special lead wire materials or coatings, or both, to avoid loss of electrical continuity caused by corrosive attack.

The Middle Tension Specimen. The minimum gage length requirement for clamped specimens for which the K-expression in A2. E — 11 skin effect previously noted. Smaller specimens ee647 require higher resolution gages.

Fatigue crack growth r Further crack symmetry requirements are given in Section 8. Poor loading pin contact may increase the percentage of an alternate current path and shunting errors.

If the M T specimen is used, or if a specimen type not described in this test method is used shall be provided. Crack growth rates are expressed as a function of the stress-intensity factor range, DK, which is calculated from expressions based on linear elastic stress analysis.

Thus, minor variations in lead placement from one specimen to the next may produce signi?

Gages must be linear over the range of displacement measured, and must have sufficient resolution and frequency response. In view of the operational de? However, data on the influence of aztm on fatigue crack growth rate are mixed. For tests in inert reference environments, such as dry argon, estimates of residual levels of water and oxygen in the test environment generally this differs from the analysis of residual impurities in the gas supply cylinder shall be given. E — 11 rate data on metallic materials in aqueous environments requires judicious selection, monitoring, and control of mechanical, chemical, and electrochemical test variables in order to ensure that the data are applicable to the intended use.


NOTE 5—If compliance methods are used employing displacement gages similar to those described in Test Methods E, E, or E, knife edges can be integrally machined or rigidly affixed to the test sample either fastened, bonded, or welded and must be geometrically compatible with the displacement device such that contact is maintained between the knife edge and the root of the mating f647 in the clip gage arm throughout the test.

For this arrangement it is also helpful to either use brass shims between the pin and specimen or to lubricate the pin to prevent fretting-fatigue cracks from initiating at the specimen loading hole. Analysis of surface cr The limit should be low enough to allow a good?
