Abstract:

The report evaluates the effects of strength level, Charpy V-notch energy, prestraining, prestraining and stress relieving, and austenitizing temperature on the fatigue life of a fully quenched HY-80 steel composition. The fatigue data developed indicate that the designer would have to be cautious when going to higher strength steel when using a safety factor which is considered satisfactory for lower strength steels, i.e., if higher strength steels are to be used, larger safety factors are necessary to obtain a comparable fatigue life. The limited data presented on experimental HY-150 steels indicate that caution will have to be exercised in evaluating large specimen fatigue data.
