The second part is composed of annexes that describe the special requirements for various specimen configurations, special requirements for testing in aqueous environments, and procedures for non-visual crack size determination. Small-crack effects can also arise from other phenomena, such as alterations in localized crack chemistry and the associated kinetics of environmentallyassisted fatigue crack growth.

Under these conditions, the voltage drop across the fatigue crack should remain constant throughout a complete force cycle assuming no crack extension. The term v0 is the displacement at the front face knife edge location shown in Fig.

All data shall be scrutinized for transients and anomalies. Experience indicates that this potential source of error is not signi? This effect is of particular concern when testing at near threshold conditions, when the force at which shorting occurs approaches e6447 peak test force level. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.


It is further recommended that replenishment of evaporated solution be conducted once every 24 h testing period, or more frequently if required, and the entire test solution be emptied and replaced not less than once a week. Moreover, the stress ratio chosen may dramatically in? NOTE 3—Corners of clevis may be removed if necessary to accommodate clip gage.

This idea, which combines fatigue crack initiation and propagation concepts, is illustrated schematically in Fig. Currently, the conditions giving rise to each of these two regimes of behavior are not clearly de? In this case, data should ee647 discarded if the growth rates following an interruption are less than those before the interruption.

Originally approved in Some recommended small-crack specimens are shown schematically in Fig. The replication process has been shown asstm in?


NOTE 2—A-surfaces shall be perpendicular and parallel as applicable to within The increased resolution required for the M T specimen is caused by its greater stiffness which makes it less amenable to this form of nonvisual crack size monitoring.

If alternative wire placements current or voltage are used, the relationship shown is no longer valid and a new relationship must be developed.

This type of specimen permits the acquisition of meaningful fatigue crack growth data immediately after? Either method is suitable for the K-increasing, constant DP test.

It is not clear if a measurable threshold exists for the growth of small fatigue cracks, although small cracks are sometimes observed to become nonpropagating. Effects of a single te The concept of similitude is assumed, which implies that cracks of differing lengths subjected to the same nominal DK will advance by equal increments of crack extension per cycle. For instance, the in? Several aspects of Test Method E that should be modi? Note that although localization by either means is convenient, it may also in?

It is suggested that, prior to testing, reference marks be applied to the test specimen at predetermined locations along the direction of cracking. If specimens are removed from the test solution for more than a brief period, it is recommended that fatigue data gathering shall not resume until the crack has extended by a 1. The small corner crack is introduced into the specimen by electrical-discharge machining a small corner notch into one edge.

For a given specimen geometry, material, and instrumentation, crack size resolution shall be analyzed and reported. Use of long crack data to analyze small crack growth often results in non-conservative life estimates.

This value corresponds to Pmax. In the former case, enhanced or reduced crack growth rates arise from interactions with the local microstructure that do not occur when total crack sizes and crack-tip process zones are relatively large. Any convenient loading frequency that enables the required force accuracy to be achieved can be used for precracking.

ASTM Ee1 – Standard Test Method for Measurement of Fatigue Crack Growth Rates

It is good practice to initiate fatigue cracks at the lowest stress intensity possible. In addition, routing the voltage measurement leads away from the motors, transformers, or other devices which produce strong f647 Misalignment can cause non-symmetric cracking, particularly for critical applications such as near-threshold testing, which f647 turn may lead to invalid data see Sec. For common laboratory specimens, a direct current in the range of 5 to 50 A and voltage resolution of about For visual measurements, polishing the test area of the specimen and using indirect lighting aid in the resolution of the crack-tip.


These include prior force history, stress-intensity range, force ratio, cyclic frequency, force-versus-time wave-form, specimen thickness, crack geometry and size, electrolyte species and concentration, exposure time,? E — 11 certain conditions of force ratio and temperature 15, 16 where sULT is the ultimate tensile strength of the material. If optical astmm cannot be made during the test, the?

Transient growth rates are also known to result from changes in Pmin or R. E — 11 skin effect previously noted. Each technique has unique strengths and limitations, and different techniques are optimum for different circumstances. However, in assessing apparent transient behavior, particular care should be taken to ensure that the crack size measurement intervals used in the data reduction are in accordance atm those recommended in 8.

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. The small crack effect may be accentuated by environmental factors.

Most solid-state power sources can stabilize the output current within a period of 1 or 2 s for a step change in output, however, this should be veri? The second part is composed of annexes that describe the special requirements for various specimen con?

Values of C algebraically e6647 than that indicated above have been demonstrated as acceptable for use in decreasing K tests of several steel alloys and aluminum alloys tested in laboratory air over a wide range of force ratios 14,
