Abstract

This paper summarizes the development of a probabilistic micromechanical code for treating variability in fatigue crack initiation and growth lives resulting from microstructure variations. The code is based on a set of microstructure-based fatigue models that predict fatigue crack initiation life, fatigue crack growth life, fatigue limit, fatigue crack growth threshold, crack size at initiation, and fracture toughness. Using microstructure information as material input, the code is capable of predicting the average behavior and the confidence limits of the crack initiation and crack growth lives of structural alloys under LCF or HCF loading. Application of the model to predicting the effects of microstructure on the fatigue crack growth response and life variability of Ti-6Al-4V will be presented to illustrate the utilities of the code for fatigue damage prognosis.
