E crack size, a [L]—a lineal measure of a principal planar dimension of a crack. This measure is commonly used in the calculation of quantities descriptive of the stress and displacement? E crack strength, sc [FL? Thus, it takes into account the original size of the crack but ignores any crack extension that may occur during the test.

A strain gaged specimen is often used as a dynamometer. E dynamometer dynamic forces [F]—the maximum and minimum forces or the mean force and e18233 force amplitude that correspond to the readings obtained from the dynamometer output according to an existing static calibration. A dynamometer for use in tension and in compression will have two dynamometer ranges, one in tension and one in E compression. Another method for calculation of ae involves comparing the compliance from the secant of a force-de?

The reference plane depends on the specimen form, and it is normally taken to r1823 either the boundary, or a plane containing either the force line or the centerline of a specimen or plate.

E environment temperature— in fatigue testing, the temperature of the bulk volume surrounding a test specimen. E environment volume [L3]—in fatigue testing, the total volume immediately surrounding a test specimen plus that contained in a circulating reservoir if applicable. E estimate—in statistical analysis, the particular value or values of a parameter computed by an estimation procedure for a given sample.

E fatigue cycle—See cycle. Fatigue life, or the logarithm of fatigue life, is a dependent variable.

E fatigue limit, S f [FL? These specimens are frequently tested asym a mean stress of zero. E fatigue loading—periodic, or not periodic,? Also known as cyclic loading. Early data pertained almost exclusively to mild steels, namely, to S a?

N curves with knees. N curves were almost parallel and almost horizontal. Otherwise, the k f data are not consistent and are markedly dependent on the type of notch, the fatigue life of interest, and the value of the mean stress. Nevertheless, kf is highly dependent on the percentile of interest. E mechanics tests, which are directly applicable in fracture control. However, the term commonly includes results from tests of notched or precracked specimens which do not involve fracture mechanics analysis.

Results from tests of the latter type are often useful for fracture control, based upon either service experience or empirical correlations with tests analyzed using fracture mechanics.

E fatigue notch sensitivity, q—a measure of the degree of agreement between fatigue notch factor, kf, and theoretical stress concentration factor, kt. Thus, these values should not be extrapolated to Sm? The value of SN thus determined is subject to the same conditions as those which apply to the S? This is also known as the median fatigue strength for N cycles.


E frequency distribution—the way in which the frequencies of occurrence of members of a population, or a sample, are distributed in accordance with the values of the variable under consideration. E group—in fatigue, specimens of the same type tested at a speci?

A group may comprise one or more specimens. R1823 hold time [T]—in fatigue testing, the amount of time awtm the cycle where the controlled test variable for example, force, strain, displacement remains constant with time. E ideal crack—a simpli? In a stress-free body, the crack has two smooth surfaces that aastm coincident and join within the body along a smooth curve called the crack front; in two-dimensional representations the crack front is called the crack tip.

It is denoted X when plotted on E appropriate coordinates. The force transducer calibration may have been furnished by the machine manufacE turer or may have been developed by the user. E force transducer—a device which indicates xstm applied force by means of an electrical voltage. Usually the electrical E voltage increases linearly with applied force.

E irregularity factor— in fatigue loading, the ratio of the number of zero crossings with positive slope or mean crossings to the number of peaks or valleys in a given, force-time history. E irregular loading— See spectrum loading. However, in service components and perhaps in test specimenscaution is needed to adequately consider loading interior to G such as from motion of the crack and from residual and thermal stress.

In constant amplitude loading, the range is given as follows: J-R curve—a plot of resistance to stable crack extension, Dap.
