On the Determination of Cyclic Stress Strain Curve of Medium Carbon Steel by Three Different Procedures 962569

Strain controlled tests were performed on 35 C8 steel specimens (IS 3930-1979) to determine cyclic stress-strain curve (CSSC) by Companion Specimens Test (CST), Multiple Step Test (MST) and Incremental Step Test (IST) procedures. A good agreement was found between the CSSCs obtained by CST and MST procedures. The CSSCs obtained by IST procedure using Incremental Step Loading Blocks (ISLB) of different maximum strain amplitude indicate that the parameters of CSSC depend on the maximum strain amplitude in the ISLB and resulted in a family of CSSCs. The dependence of CSSC parameters on the maximum strain amplitude in the ISLB are approximated by polynomials.
Fatigue lives estimated based on IST results for irregular strain-time histories were found to be comparable with the experimentally evaluated fatigue lives.
