Purpose The purpose of this paper is to consider an approximate model of accumulation of microdefects in a material under repeated loading which makes it possible to define theoretical parameters of the fatigue failure (durability, fatigue limit, etc.). The model is involving the relevant law of distribution of ultimate (yield) stresses in the material of these members in combination with the basic characteristics of main mechanical properties of a material (ultimate and yield stresses and associated standard deviations). Design/methodology/approach The model of fatigue failure of brittle and elastoplastic materials based on the use of the structural-probabilistic approach and up-to-date ideas on the mechanism of material fracture is proposed. The model combines statistical fracture criteria, which are expressed in terms of damage concentrations, with the approximate model of microcrack accumulation under repeating loading of the same level. According to these criteria, the fatigue failure begins with the accumulation of separation- or shear-type microdefects up to the level of critical values of their density. Findings The failure mechanism is associated with the accumulation of dispersed microdamages under repeated loading. The critical value of the density of the microdamages, which are identified with those formed either by separation or shear under static loading in consequence of simple tension, compression or shear, is accepted as the criterion of the onset of fatigue failure. The fatigue being low-cycle or high-cycle is attributed to accumulation of shear microdamages in the region of plastic deformation in the former case and microdamages produced by separation under elastic deformation in the latter one. Originality/value The originality of the paper consists in the following. The authors theoretically define parameters of the fatigue failure (durability, fatigue limit, etc.) using the model in combination with the statistical failure (yield) criteria appearing in the damage measures. The constructed fatigue diagram has discontinuities on the conditional boundary dividing domains with the shear-type and separation-type fractures of structural elements. Such results are supported by the experimental results.

A statistical strength criterion for brittle materials under static and repeated loadings is proposed. The criterion relates beginning of a macrofracture in the form of origination of microcracks to the moment at which the microcrack density in the material becomes critical. The idea of the criterion consists in identification of the values of microdefect concentration under static and repeated loadings with the value of microdefect concentration which is held in the case of fracture under uniax...

A structural-probabilistic model of fatigue failure of structures made of elasto-brittle materials and undergoing cyclic loading is proposed. The model is based on the use of the Daniels model of accumulation of defects in the form of flat stochastically dispersed microcracks and of the statistical strength criterion for materials whose failure occurs by forming rupture macrocracks. This statistical criterion is convenient to use in the study of fatigue failure under cyclic loading. The reason f...

Metallic materials are extensively used in engineering structures and fatigue failure is one of the most common failure modes of metal structures. Fatigue phenomena occur when a material is subjected to fluctuating stresses and strains, which lead to failure due to damage accumulation. Different methods, including the Palmgren-Miner linear damage rule- (LDR-) based, multiaxial and variable amplitude loading, stochastic-based, energy-based, and continuum damage mechanics methods, forecast fatigue...

Abstract In this paper, we study fatigue failure using the variational multiscale method (VMM). In the VMM, displacement jumps are represented using finite elements with specially constructed discontinuous shape functions. These elements are progressively added along the crack path during fatigue failure. The stiffness of these elements changes non-linearly in response to the accumulation of damage during cyclic loading. The evolution law for stiffness is represented as a function of traction an...

The present paper addresses the continuum model describing deformation and accumulation of microdamages in electroelastic materials based on the generalized Eshelby principle. The microdamageability is considered as a process of appearance of flat elliptic or circular microcracks randomly dispersed over volume, the concentration of which increases with a load. The Eshelby method is based on the principle of equivalence of the deformation energy of fractured piezoelectric materials and the energy...

A numerical model capable of dealing with progressive degradation of plain woven composites in a computationally efficient manner is presented in this article. A semi-analytical homogenization method is used to derive effective properties of the composite from the material properties of the constituents. The progressive failure is described using nonlocal continuum damage mechanics where the driving internal variable for the damage is the nonlocal strain. The model was implemented into Abaqus/Ex...
Based on a probabilistic model of brittle microfracture (microdamage) leading to macrofracture of materials, we propose a statistical interpretation of strength criteria, which relate start of macrofracture (manifested by macrocrack formation in tension or internal structure stability loss in compression) with attainment of a certain (critical) value of density of microdefects in the material under study. The criterion is reduced to comparative analysis of microdefect density induced by the part...

The variant of a continuum model describing joint deformation and accumulation of microdamages in elastic-brittle materials is presented. The microdamageability is considered as the process of origin of a system of flat elliptic or circular microcracks randomly dispersed over volume, the concentration of which increases with a load. The damageable material is simulated by the continuous medium, for which the elastic symmetry and non-linear law of deformation are attributed to the pattern of the ...

Abstract In the present work, a simple engineering approach which is based on a relatively solid background and which is checked against fatigue test data for various test conditions was developed: it may provide a practical and reliable basis for the analysis of structures under in-service loading conditions, in the presence of previous corrosion attack, or in the presence of a residual stress field, by using widespread fracture mechanics software. In particular, the approach was checked agains...

A nonlocal multiscale model in time domain is developed for fatigue life predictions. The method is based on the mathematical homogenization theory with almost periodic fields. The almost periodicity reflects the effects of irreversible deformations in time domain in the form of accumulation of damage. Multiple temporal scales are introduced to decompose the original boundary value problem into micro-chronological (temporal unit cell) and macro-chronological (homogenized) problems. A nonlocal Gu...

Abstract null null Traditional design approaches using safety factors are intended to account for uncertainties due to the lack of available data in engineering practice. However, the direct use of safety factor to represent uncertainties often causes conservative results, and it is not intuitive to describe the reliability of these structures through safety factor. To deal with the issue, this research revisits the initial consideration and intent of the safety factor for static strength and ad...
