Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Understand the physical significance of material behavior under cyclic loading. Teach listeners to evaluate the real loading processes in operation from the point of view of fatigue damage cummulation. Teach listeners to calculate and estimate the fatigue lifetime, the residual fatigue lifetime and the operation safety of structures and its parts under cyclic loading. Give the basic information about the fatigue cracks and cracks propagation.
Course contents:
• Material behavior under cyclic loading, fatigue process stages
• Processing and simulations of operation loadings
• Fatigue characteristics of materials
• Hysteresis energy, fatigue cummulation hypothesis
• Evaluation of the fatigue safety and reliability of the structures
• Fatigue cracks propagation
