Abstract

THE problems of fatigue testing are usually associated with the testing of specially machined specimens in a reverse loading machine such as the Whöler. Tests of this nature are designed to disclose the characteristic fatigue curve of the material freed from all imperfections necessitated in a mechanical structure by machining or design. The usual presentation of the results is, of course, in the form of the familiar S/N diagram, where the number of cycles required to produce a failure are plotted against the magnitude of the applied stress.
