Is there a fatigue limit in metals? This question is the main focusof this book.
Written by a leading researcher in the field, Claude Bathiaspresents a thorough and authoritative examination of the couplingbetween plasticity, crack initiation and heat dissipation forlifetimes that exceed the billion cycle, leading us to question theconcept of the fatigue limit, both theoretically andtechnologically.
This is a follow-up to the Fatigue of Materials and Structuresseries of books previously published in 2011.
1. Introduction on Very High Cycle Fatigue.
2. Plasticity and Initiation in Gigacycle Fatigue.
3. Heating Dissipation in the Gigacycle Regime.
About the Authors
Claude Bathias is Emeritus Professor at the University of Paris10-La Defense in France. He started his career as a researchengineer in the aerospace and military industry where he remainedfor 20 years before becoming director of the CNRS laboratory ERA914 at the University of Compiègne in France. He has launchedtwo international conferences about fatigue: InternationalConference on the Fatigue of Composite Materials (ICFC) and VeryHigh Cycle Fatigue (VHCF).This new, up-to-date text supplements the book Fatigue ofMaterials and Structures, which had been previously publishedby ISTE and John Wiley in 2011. A thorough review of couplingbetween plasticity, crack priming, and thermal dissipation forlifespans higher than a billion of cycle has led us to question theconcept of fatigue limit, from both the theoretical andtechnological point of view. This book will address that and more.
