Abstract:

The cyclic stress-strain behavior and the SN behavior of a pseudo-elastic alloy, Ti-6Al-4V of coarsened microstructure, and of a plastic material, copper, are compared. In accord with views recently put forth by Freudenthal, important differences are noted between these two types of materials. These differences include the mode of crack initiation, the intensity of the Bauschinger effect, and the level below macroscopic yeild at which long-life fatigue data lie. Author
