|Abstract:||As well known, an interaction effect arises, on crack propagation, when a specimen or a component is subjected to variable amplitude fatigue loading. Depending on the applied load sequence, a certain amount of retardation or acceleration can then be observed, on the fatigue crack growth rate, with respect to the constant amplitude case. In the case of structural ductile materials, the interaction phenomenon is mainly addressed by the local plasticity at the crack tip and can be explained, from a global point of view, by adopting the crack closure concept. In the present research, load interaction effects in a medium strength steel for railway axles are experimentally analyzed by small-scale, companion and full-scale specimens. The experimental outcomes were then modeled adopting both a simple no-interaction approach and a Strip-Yield model in order to quantify the possible interaction effects. The modeling was carried out considering different experimental techniques for deriving the crack growth and threshold behaviors of the material, i.e. the traditional K-decreasing technique and the compression pre-cracking one.|
