Abstract

Computational and experimental analysis of residual stress effects on fatigue crack growth in a compact tension shear (CTS) specimen H. Wang\ F.-G. BuchhoW, H. A. Richard^ S. Jagg^, B. Scholtes^ ^Institute of Applied Mechanics, University of Paderborn, Germany 'Institute of Materials, University ofKassel, Germany Abstract In this paper computational and experimental results are presented concerning residual stress effects on fatigue crack growth in a compact tension shear (CTS) specimen under cyclic mode I loading. For a crack of constant length it is found that hardly any compressive residual stresses or crack closure effects are generated along the crack surfaces behind the crack tip through the considered cyclic mode I loading with a load ratio of R = 0.1. Only if fatigue crack growth is modelled during the simulation of the cyclic loading process these well known effects are found. On the other hand it is shown that they have hardly any influence on the residual stres
