Subcommittee 3.1 on Multiaxial Fatigue

13th Conference on Fracture Mechanics, Opole, 05-07 September 2011
The 13th CFM was held between 05-07 September 2011 on the premises of the Opole University of Technology. It was a continuation of series of conferences started in 1987 in Kielce, Poland. Chairman of the Polish Group of Fracture Mechanics and mentor of these conferences is prof. Andrzej Neimitz from the Department of Machine Design, Kielce University of Technology.
The organizer was the Centre of Structural Integrity at the department of Mechanics and Machine Design of the Mechanical Engineering Faculty and the Opole Branch of the Polish Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics under the auspices of the European Structural Integrity Society. The Conference received financial support from the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education.
The International Scientific Committee consisted of 38 researchers. The Organizational Committee consisting of prof. Ewald Macha – Chairman, Associate Prof. Dariusz Rozumek – Secretary, dr Zbigniew Marciniak, dr Roland Pawliczek, Joanna Drozd and Magdalena Filipek was responsible for the efficient course of all matters at the conference. 43 persons participated in the conference, and 48 papers by 94 authors from 20 countries were delivered.
In the opening ceremony prof. Marek Tukiendorf, V-ce Rector for Science presented activities in teaching and scientific research of OUT with special regard to the international co-operation.
The conference programme was divided into six plenary sessions, eight thematic sessions and a poster session.
The aim of the conference was to share information and facilitate collaboration regarding fracture mechanics, damage and fatigue of materials and also dissemination of current research in this field. The conference provided a platform for multi-disciplinary approach towards design, construction and exploitation of machines and devices under service loading and for lifetime prediction. It covered the following topics:

  • Experimental methods in fracture mechanics;
  • Computational, analytical and numerical methods;
  • Multiscale modeling of fracture mechanics;
  • Influence of microstructure on fracture;
  • Fatigue fracture;
  • Composite fracture;
  • Influence of environment (temperature and aggressive media) on cracking course;
  • Dynamic problems in fracture mechanics;
  • Practical applications of fracture mechanics;
  • Other problems connected with fracture.

 

All abstracts of papers presented at the conference and at the poster session were published in a book entitled: Scientific Papers of the Opole University of Technology, Mechanics iss. 343, vol. 99, Opole, Eds. D. Rozumek & E. Macha, 2011, ps. 134. At present, editorial work is ongoing to ensure publication of the papers in national and foreign journals with high impact.
A guided walking tour of Opole took place on the second day of the conference. The route led through the most characteristic and picturesque spots in the old town. The guests got to know some key facts about the history of Opole from its foundation until today. A dinner at the Venezia Restaurant located in the city centre created an excellent opportunity to taste regional cuisine and local delicacies. Traditional Polish folk dances and songs were presented to the guests on the other evening performance of the Dance and Song Group OPOLE in the Local Youth Community Centre.
On the last day of conference, the participants were taken for a day tour to Moszna Castle. Located in the southwest part of Poland, about 30 km from Opole, the 17th century castle and park complex is reminiscent of the English castles from the Elizabethan period the former residence of the German Tiele-Winckler family. The castle functions as a hotel with an equestrian centre offering English thoroughbred horses for rides.
The Chairman and the Scientific Council of the Polish Group of Fracture were elected during the conference, who will serve a two-year term ending in 2013. Prof. Andrzej Neimitz from Kielce University of Technology was again elected chairman. Members of the Scientific Council became:
1. Dariusz Boroński from the University of Technology and Life Sciences in Bydgoszcz
2. Dorota Kocańda from the Military University of Technology

ESIS TC3.1 Sub-Committee “Multiaxial Fatigue”
ACTIVITIES DURING 2008-2009
Implemented project: Energy-based approach to multiaxial fatigue using the critical plane. Stage 3.
As in the previous period (2004-2006), the main bjective of the project was development of the existing and formulation of new algorithms for estimation of fatigue life of machine components and structures subjected to multiaxial service loading, based on mechanisms of crack initiation and propagation, identified during tests. The energy-based parameter for description of fatigue properties of materials under random loading, used for generalization of multiaxial fatigue failure criteria, was analyzed and verified. The test results obtained under cyclic, constant and variable amplitudes, random, proportional and non-proportional loading were used for validation of the generalized criterion of maximum shear and normal strain energy density in the critical plane. Much progress was made in fatigue life evaluation of some chosen welded joints in simple and complex states of stress and in development of the spectral method for fatigue life assessment in materials under multiaxial random loading in frequency domain.

Activities:

FUTURE ACTIVITIES (2008-2010)
Implemented project: Energy based approach to multiaxial fatigue using the critical plane. Stage 4
The main objectives of the project are the same as in the stages 1, 2 and 3, but we are going to concentrate on the following tasks:
1. Development of new procedures for precise determination of the fatigue characteristics of materials with a controlled strain energy density parameter at the strength test stand. Up to now, the energy fatigue characteristics of materials, expressed by the amplitude of strain energy density (Wa-Nf) has been indirectly determined, i.e. by calculations with the use of parameters of the Mason- Coffin curve (εa-Nf). Only the amplitude of strains, εa is controlled during this test, and it is assumed that amplitude of stress σa remains constant. However, for many cyclically unstable materials such as polymers, composites and some metallicalloys, the amplitude of stress, σa, changes considerably causing the energy fatigue characteristics of material (Wa-Nf) to be not precisely determined. Thus, a more precise and direct determination of the energy characteristics becomes an important task for an energy-based approach to multiaxial fatigue.
2. Advancement of the spectral method for fatigue life assessment for materials under multiaxial random loading in the frequency
domain.
3. Improvement of procedures for fatigue damage maps forecast for machine components and structures subjected tomultiaxial service loading by calculations wit FEM or BEM spectral methods.

Work plan:
1. Meeting in Vicenza (Italy) during the ESIS International Conference on Fatigue Crack Paths (CP2009) in September 2009
2. Meeting in Parma during the Ninth International Conference on Multiaxial Fatigue and Fracture (ICMFF9) in June 2010
3. Organization of the 6th International Conference Mechatronic Systems and Materials (MSM2010) in Opole (Poland) in July 2010

  1. Main Objectives of ESIS 2003

    The main objective of this Committee has been to organize a well structured group of Sub-Committees in order to analyze some major issues not yet completely understood in the field of fatigue. Professor Andrea Carpinteri and Professor Les P Pook (TC3 Co-Chairmen) and Dr Andrea Spagnoli (TC3 Secretary) have collected suggestions on which specific fatigue aspects should have been examined by individual TC3 Sub-Committees, and how to build up the strength of TC3. Active subcommittees are:

    TC3.1 - "Multiaxial Fatigue", chaired by Professor Ewald Macha (Email:emac@po.opole.pl). The main objective of TC3.1 is the development of existing algorithms and the formulation of new procedures in order to estimate fatigue life of machine components and civil engineering structures subjected to multiaxial service loading, based on mechanisms of crack initiation and propagation, identified during tests. A Research Project entitled "Energy-based approach to multiaxial fatigue using the critical plane" is in progress.

    TC3.2 - "High Temperature Fatigue", initially chaired by Professor Jean Petit of Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Mécanique et d'Aérotechnique in Futuroscope, France. Due to the commitments of Professor Petit, a new Chairman will be appointed as soon as possible.

    TC3 Officers have advertised and co-ordinated fatigue activities so that they have been arranged out-of-phase. Therefore let the TC3 Officers know also about activities being planned in the future (especially as far as fatigue conferences are concerned) so that TC3 Officers can be more efficient in the circulation of information. Furthermore, the TC3 Committee has requested up-dated information for the TC3 database to ensure that all TC3 members received information at the correct address, well in advance of any meetings. Besides the postal address, FAX number and ESIS membership number, we also require the e-mail address of all ESIS members interested in TC3.


  2. ESIS TC3 Activities during the present year (2003)

    2.1 Professor Les P. Pook (London) has been the Guest Editor of a Special Issue of the international Journal "Fatigue and Fracture of Engineering Materials and Structures" (FFEMS), under the title "Biaxial/Multiaxial Fatigue", Vol. 26, No. 6, 2003. Associate Guest Editors have been Professor K. Dang Van (École Polytechnique, Palaiseau, France) and Professor Cetin Morris Sonsino (Fraunhofer- Institute für Betriebsfestigkeit, LBF, Darmstadt, Germany).

    2.2 Professor Andrea Carpinteri (Parma), Professor Manuel de Freitas (Lisbon) and Dr Andrea Spagnoli (Parma) are the Editors of an ESIS Special Technical Publication (ESIS STP Volume 31) entitled "Biaxial/Multiaxial Fatigue and Fracture", published by Elsevier Science Ltd. (ISBN 0-08-044129-7, http://www.elsevier.nl/) in 2003.

    2.3 Professor Alfredo Navarro (Seville), Professor Eduardo de los Rios (Sheffield), Professor Andrea Carpinteri (Parma) and Professor Pook (London) have been the Chairmen of an ESIS international conference on "Cumulative Fatigue Damage" (CFD 2003) held in Seville, Spain, 26th to 30th May, 2003.

    2.4 Professor Andrea Carpinteri (Parma) and Professor Les P. Pook (London) have been the Chairmen of an ESIS international conference on "Fatigue Crack Paths" (FCP 2003) held in Parma, Italy, 18th to 20th September, 2003. Such a conference has drawn together the different strategies that designers and failure analysts face in relation to 3- dimensional stress-strain fields, projected fracture paths, critical plane approaches, and the fundamentals of Stage I (shear) and Stage II (tensile type) cracks. Physicists, metallurgists and fracture mechanics experts have all been required to solve some long-term problems presenting high quality papers.

    2.5 Professor Andrea Carpinteri (Parma) and Professor Les P. Pook (London) are the Guest Editors of a Special Issue of the international Journal "Fatigue and Fracture of Engineering Materials and Structures" (FFEMS), under the title "Fatigue Crack Paths" (in progress).

  3. ESIS TC3 Present and planned future activities

3.1 Professor Cetin Morris Sonsino (Darmstadt) is the Chairman of the Seventh International "Biaxial/Multiaxial Fatigue and Fracture" conference to be held in Berlin, 28th to 30th June, 2004. Co-Chairmen are Professor P.D. Portella (Berlin) and Professor H. Zenner (Clausthal- Zellerfeld). The aim of this conference is not only to display the substantial international progress achieved in understanding of multiaxial fatigue and fracture behavior during the past years, but also to illustrate how research results apply to industrial practice and to close the gap between design and manufacturing engineers and scientists. Associated failure assessment procedures are now becoming more complex, and it is essential to have a forum that includes experimentalists, theoreticians, industrial practitioners and academic experts.

3.2 Professor Andrea Carpinteri (Parma) and Professor Les P. Pook (London) are going to organize a Mini - Symposium on " Numerical Approaches to Fatigue " at ICF 11 (11th International Conference on Fracture, Turin, Italy, March 20th to 25th, 2005). Experts interested in participating in such a Mini - Symposium are invited to contact andrea.carpinteri@unipr.it by email.

3.3 Professor Andrea Carpinteri (Parma) and Professor Les P. Pook (London) are planning to organize an ESIS international conference on "Crack Paths" to be held in 2006 (see the ESIS website http://www.esisweb.org ; information available in a close future).
