Abstract

Three methods available in the literature to estimate the axial S-N curve from the rotating bending fatigue performance were summarized. Axial and rotating bending fatigue tests were conducted at various alternating stresses on specimens excised from A356 aluminum alloy castings in the high cycle fatigue range. These data were used to assess the effectiveness of the models. Among the three models, the one developed by Manson and Muralidharan did not provide good estimates of the axial fatigue performance from rotating bending data. The geometric correction factor proposed by Philipp yielded the best fit, however, did not alter the Basquin exponent whereas the one proposed by Halford and Manson provided a poor estimate. Only the model proposed by Esin provided accurate estimates of fatigue performance as well as the Basquin exponent.
