Fatigue crack growth under non-proportional mixed-mode loading in ferritic-pearlitic steel

Abstract : Mode II fatigue crack growth tests as well as tests in sequential mode I and then mode II were performed on ferritic‐pearlitic steel. For ΔKII ranging from 7 to 43 MPa $\sqrt{m}$, bifurcation occurs after 12–450 μm of coplanar growth at a decreasing speed. By contrast, hundreds of micrometres of constant speed coplanar growth were obtained under sequential mode I and then mode II loading, for ΔKII=20MPA$\sqrt{m}$ and ΔKI ranging from 0.25 to 1.0 ΔKII. The crack growth rate is a simple sum of the contributions of each mode for ΔKI= 0.25 ΔKII but above this value a synergetic effect is found. The mechanism of this fast‐propagation mode is discussed in the light of strain range maps ahead of the crack tip obtained by digital SEM image correlation and elastic–plastic finite element calculations. The stability of the crack path according to the maximum growth rate criterion is demonstrated.
