In engineering applications, fatigue phenomenon is a key issue and needs to be analyzed in the beginning of design phase in case of any component exposed to alternating loading on operation otherwise catastrophic fatigue failure may cause. Component can be designed with safe life, fail-safe, and damage tolerant approach based on whether redundant load path and damage sensitive. Before starting analyzing the structure, material allowable data needs to be presented in a reliable way to predict fatigue life of components. SN curves with presented confidence levels are the robust approach to make a prediction on safe life of a structure in terms of fatigue. In this point, there are so many approaches to determine fatigue limit of materials and issue shall be handled by statistical manner. In literature, different staircase and curve fitting methods were presented to estimate endurance limit of materials and some reliability manuscript published. In this paper, fatigue limit of AISI 4340 steel will be investigated through most convinced staircase and curve fitting approaches and their reliability will be queried.

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...
Analysis of the thermoviscoplastic behavior of [0/90] SCS-6/timetal®21S composites
Çöker, Demirkan; Nicholas, Theodore (1996-01-01)
Micromechanical modeling is used to determine the stresses and strains due to both mechanical and thermal loads in [0/90] titanium matrix composites (TMCs) subjected to cooldown from the processing temperature and subsequent thermomechanical fatigue (TMF) loading conditions. The [0/90] composite is treated as a material system composed of three constituents: fiber and matrix in the [0] ply, and a [90] ply. The [0/90]s layup is modeled by a uniaxial stress rule of mixtures model for the [0] ply and adding a ...
Evaluation of several multiaxial high cycle fatigue endurance criteria
Engin, Zafer; Çöker, Demirkan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2018)
Multiaxial high cycle fatigue is an important failure mode for industrial applications as it is experienced by many engineering parts such as rotor blades and crankshafts. Determining the critical locations and especially the fatigue lives of such components have great importance. Therefore, a methodology is needed which would replace expensive and time-consuming test campaigns as it is not possible and feasible to simulate all the loading scenarios that component would experience during the service life. T...
Comparison of Equivalent Stress Methods with Critical Plane Approaches for Multiaxial High Cycle Fatigue Assessment
Engin, Zafer; Çöker, Demirkan (Elsevier BV; 2017-09-07)
Several equivalent stress methods and more advanced critical plane criteria are compared in terms of their performance in fatigue life estimations under uniaxial and biaxial loadings in which the effect of phase is investigated. For this purpose a MATLAB code is written which transforms the multiaxial cyclic stress state into a uniaxial cyclic stress to use with the equivalent stress based methods. For critical plane approaches the program searches a damage parameter on all material planes. The maximum dama...
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...
