Fretting problem arises in the case of relatively small sliding motion between contacting surfaces leading to reduction in fatigue life of these parts significantly. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of fretting on the contact region in a cylindrical on flat contact configuration. In order to identify fretting contact, a finite element (FE) model was constructed by using commercial finite element package ABAQUS (TM). Fretting contact is studied under two types of loading: tangential loading of the pad and axial bulk stress loading of the specimen. The numerical calculated stresses are compared with Mindlin analytical solution and Nowell and Hills analytical solution (which includes the effect of bulk stress). In order to get a better estimate of fretting in real type structures such as bolted joints and lug type structures, dissimilar materials in the contact region are then studied. For dissimilar materials, in the light of the conducted numerical analysis, Mindlin solution does not give reliable results in terms of shear traction distribution when compared to FE results. Finally, the effect of non-homogeneity in materials is investigated by addition of circular voids. (C) 2017 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.

Fretting problem arises in the case of relatively small sliding motion between contacting surfaces. Fatigue life of the components that are in contact with each other, especially in rotorcraft may be significantly reduced due to fretting. The purpose of this study is to investigate material inhomogeneity near the contact region on the fretting problem in a cylindrical on flat contact configuration. A finite element (FE) model was constructed by using commercial finite element package ABAQUS (TM) to study pa...
Vibration fatigue analysis and testing of notched beams
Demirel, Gürzap İsmail; Kayran, Altan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2019)
Mechanical fatigue is an important phenomenon when the structures are exposed to dynamic, fluctuating loadings. Especially aerospace structures are commonly exposed to random vibration loadings. Even if the components are stable and durable for static requirements, vibration fatigue failures can occur due to the dynamic and fluctuating loadings. Moreover, if the loading frequency has a wide bandwidth as in random vibration loadings, the natural frequencies or resonance regions of the structures are disturbe...
Vibration Fatigue Analysis of a Cantilever Beam Using Different Fatigue Theories
Eldoğan, Yusuf; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2014-02-11)
In this study, vibration fatigue analysis of a cantilever beam is performed using an in-house numerical code. Finite element model (FEM) of the cantilever beam verified by tests is used for the analysis. Several vibration fatigue theories are used to obtain fatigue life of the cantilever beam for white noise random input and the results obtained are compared with each other. Fatigue life calculations are repeated for different damping ratios and the effect of damping ratio is studied. Moreover, using strain...
Implementation of Dirlik’s damage model for the vibration fatigue analysis
Demirel, Gürzap İ.; Kayran, Altan (2019)
Mechanical fatigue is an important phenomenon when the structures are exposed to dynamic, fluctuating loadings. Especially aerospace structures are commonly exposed to random vibration loadings. In this paper, random vibration fatigue is studied both numerically and experimentally. For this purpose, a rectangular cross-section notched beam is designed in order to conduct the vibration fatigue analysis in the frequency domain by the Dirlik's damage model. Aluminum and steel notched beams are prepared in orde...
Computational Methods for Inclined Cracks in Orthotropic Functionally Graded Materials Under Thermal Stresses
Dağ, Serkan; TOPAL, SERRA (2013-10-03)
This article sets forth two different computational methods developed to evaluate fracture parameters for inclined cracks lying in orthotropic functionally graded materials, that are under the effect of thermal stresses. The first method is based on the J(k)-integral, whereas the second entails the use of the J(1)-integral and the asymptotic displacement fields. The procedures introduced are implemented by means of the finite element method and integrated into a general purpose finite element analysis softw...
