Abstract
In this paper, stress intensity factor solutions for adhesive-bonded lap-shear specimens of magnesium alloy AZ31 and hot-dip-galvanized (HDG) mild steel sheets with and without kinked cracks are investigated for fatigue life estimations. First, the kinked fatigue crack failure mode of the adhesive-bonded lap-shear specimens is briefly reviewed. Then, the analytical global J integral and effective stress intensity factor solutions for main cracks in lap-shear specimens of three dissimilar sheets under plane strain conditions are developed based on the beam bending theory. The global effective stress intensity factor solutions for the main cracks in the lap-shear specimens from the corresponding finite element analyses are then presented and validated by the analytical solutions. Next, the local stress intensity factor solutions for kinked cracks with the experimentally observed kink angle as functions of the kink length from the corresponding finite element analyses are presented and the computational solutions are also compared with the analytical solutions at small kink lengths. The results indicate that the computational local stress intensity factor solutions for kinked cracks approach to the analytical solutions as the kink length decreases to a small value and the kinked crack is under dominant mode I loading conditions. The computational results also indicate that the local stress intensity factor solutions at a small kink length of microstructural significance may be used as the stress intensity factor solutions for zero or near zero kink length for fatigue life estimations when the computational results are not available. The computational local stress intensity factor solutions are then adopted to estimate the fatigue lives of the lap-shear specimens based on a kinked crack growth model and available material constants for the Paris law. The fatigue life estimations are lower than the experimental results. However, the general trend of fatigue life estimations agrees with that of the experimental results.

Abstract Fatigue tests were conducted using both extruded and rolled magnesium alloys AZ31 to study anisotropy of the fatigue behavior of the alloys. For the above purpose, two types of specimens whose longitudinal axes are parallel (E specimen) and perpendicular (T specimen) to the extrusion direction were prepared for the extruded Mg alloy. For the rolled Mg alloy, three types of specimens, whose longitudinal axes are parallel (R specimen) and perpendicular (T and S specimens) to the rolling d...

Abstract Mode I fatigue crack growth (FCG) experiments were carried out using extruded AZ31B magnesium alloy in ambient air. The cracks in the experiments using compact tension (CT) specimens were oriented in three different directions with respect to the extrusion direction. With constant load amplitude, the experiments were conducted with three load ratios (minimum load over maximum load in a loading cycle): 0.1, 0.5 and 0.75. The experimental results reveal that the specimen orientation has a...

Fatigue behavior of dissimilar ultrasonic welds between magnesium alloy AZ31 and galvanized steel sheets is investigated experimentally, with stress intensity factor solutions and with a kinked crack growth life estimation model. First, stress intensity factor solutions for welds with various widths in lap-shear specimens with and without kinked cracks are obtained using finite element analyses. The analytical stress intensity factor solutions for lap-shear specimens based on the beam bending th...

Ultrasonic spot welds were made between sheets of 0.8-mm-thick hot-dip-galvanized mild steel and 1.6-mm-thick AZ31B-H24. Lap-shear strengths of 3.0-4.2 kN were achieved with weld times of 0.3-1.2 s. Failure to achieve strong bonding of joints where the Zn coating was removed from the steel surface indicate that Zn is essential to the bonding mechanism. Microstructure characterization and microchemical analysis indicated temperatures at the AZ31-steel interfaces reached at least 344 C in less tha...

Fatigue experiments were carried out in laboratory air using an extruded magnesium alloy, AZ31, to investigate the effect of load ratio on the fatigue life and crack propagation behavior. The crack propagation behavior was analyzed using a modified linear elastic fracture mechanics parameter, M. The relation crack propagation rate vs. M parameter was found to be useful in predicting fatigue lives at different R ratios. Good agreement between the estimated and the experimental results at each str...

Fatigue crack propagation (FCP) was studied on wrought magnesium alloys, AZ31 and AZ61, in laboratory air, dry air and distilled water. In laboratory air, the FCP rate versus stress intensity factor plots consisted of two sections with different slopes, which was clearly recognized after allowing for crack closure. This was attributed to the transition in fracture mechanisms operated. In distilled water, FCP rates were nearly the same as in laboratory air, while in dry air, an order of magnitude...

The present work proposes a new numerical approach based on the derivation method of Bridgman to determine (KIC) of galvanized steel sheets. The method relies on a fracture analysis numerical code “Franc2D,” which permits to simulating the initiation and propagation of a crack on grooved tensile specimens. First, the stress intensity factor is obtained while the crack is propagating and then (KIC) is determined from the fitting curves of the stress intensity factor (KI) to crack length (a) plot ...

Abstract Mechanical properties and failure characteristics of Mg97Y2Zn1 (at%) alloys, prepared by gravity casting and extrusion processes, are examined experimentally. High tensile and fatigue strengths are obtained for extruded Mg97Y2Zn1 alloys, with the values being approximately twice as high as those for cast Mg97Y2Zn1 alloys. Such high strengths are attributed to the high internal stress arising from the complicated microstructure and severe lattice strain in the α-Mg and long-period stacki...

Failure modes and fatigue behaviors of ultrasonic spot welds in lap-shear specimens of magnesium AZ31B-H24 and hot-dipped-galvanized mild steel sheets with and without adhesive were investigated. The spot welded specimens failed from the kinked crack growth mode. The adhesive-bonded specimens failed from the cohesive failure through the adhesive and the kinked crack growth through the magnesium sheet. The weld-bonded specimens failed from the cohesive failure through the adhesive, the interfacia...

Abstract Structural adhesive is widely employed in vehicle structures to enhance noise-vibration and crashworthiness performance. It is also known that structural durability is enhanced with application of structural adhesive. Many researchers have reported the fatigue performance of adhesive joints, but the test results showed noticeable scatter, making it hard to develop a fatigue life prediction method. This study fabricated cross-tension specimens joined with either adhesive only or adhesive...
