Abstract : Studies have been conducted to evaluate the low-cycle high-stress fatigue behavior of several ship steels under a variety of loading conditions. On the basis of these tests and related studies reported in the literature a general hypothesis describing the cumulative effect of plastic deformations has been developed. With this hypothesis the deformation obtained in a single loading may be used to describe or predict the basic low-cycle fatigue behavior of mild steels for lives up to approximately 1,000 cycles. Furthermore, limited correlations with existing data from other investigations suggest that it may also be possible to extend the hypothesis to metals other than steel. (Author)
