    Fatigue Mechanical Life Design-A Review- ENDURANCE LIMIT

      Fatigue Mechanical Life Design-A Review- ENDURANCE LIMIT Fatigue is due to a reversible stress. Material fails at a much lower stress under reversible stress. In order to avoid fatigue failure, a stress is found at which a material never fails even after infinite reversals. This stress is called the endurance limit. FACTORS AFFECTING ENDURANCE […]

      Fatigue Mechanical Life Design-A Review-1 Fatigue Mechanical Life Design-A Review  Abstract Fatigue is due to cyclic loading and unloading of one kind or the other. It is due to the presence of discontinuities in the material. Mostly fatigue failure is progressive and plastic in nature. It is due to the nucleation, growth and propagation […]
