Overview

Understand why fatigue happens and how to model, simulate, design and test for it with this practical, industry-focused reference

Written to bridge the technology gap between academia and industry, the Metal Fatigue Analysis Handbook presents state-of-the-art fatigue theories and technologies alongside more commonly used practices, with working examples included to provide an informative, practical, complete toolkit of fatigue analysis.

Prepared by an expert team with extensive industrial, research and professorial experience, the book will help you to understand:

  • Critical factors that cause and affect fatigue in the materials and structures relating to your work
  • Load and stress analysis in addition to fatigue damage-the latter being the sole focus of many books on the topic
  • How to design with fatigue in mind to meet durability requirements
  • How to model, simulate and test with different materials in different fatigue scenarios
  • The importance and limitations of different models for cost effective and efficient testing

Whilst the book focuses on theories commonly used in the automotive industry, it is also an ideal resource for engineers and analysts in other disciplines such as aerospace engineering, civil engineering, offshore engineering, and industrial engineering.

  • The only book on the market to address state-of-the-art technologies in load, stress and fatigue damage analyses and their application to engineering design for durability
  • Intended to bridge the technology gap between academia and industry - written by an expert team with extensive industrial, research and professorial experience in fatigue analysis and testing
  • An advanced mechanical engineering design handbook focused on the needs of professional engineers within automotive, aerospace and related industrial disciplines

                            The new book from Lee, Barkey and Kang, Metal Fatigue Analysis Handbook, calls itself a handbook, it goes far beyond the scope of most handbooks by including in-depth explanations of nearly all of the analysis techniques that are likely to be employed by engineers and scientists concerned with durability and fatigue issues in any ground-based vehicle and machinery industries. The book is replete with example problems that are explained in much greater detail than is typically seen in books on this topic. It is also richly illustrated and thoroughly referenced. The book covers all of the issues and topics that most ground vehicle engineers will address, from the basics of stress-based uniaxial fatigue analysis, to multiaxial strain-based analysis, and the very specialized and often overlooked topics of vibration fatigue, weld fatigue life-prediction and the finite element analysis (FEA) of bolted joints. Chapter 1, Road Load Analysis Techniques in Automotive Engineering, covers the types of loads and load histories that automobiles are subjected to, and how those loads are captured and converted into component stresses and strains for further analysis. It describes the standard testing and analysis procedures that are employed, the instruments that record data, and the commercial FEA models that are used to analyze the data. Chapter 2, Psuedo Stress Analysis Techniques, delves into the basics of the linear-elastic (LE-) FEA methods that are the most commonly used techniques for static stress and modal transient stress response analyses. Chapter 3, Rainflow Cycle Counting Techniques, is a very thorough and complete description of rainflow techniques. Chapters 4 and 5 cover stress-based fatigue analysis, for both uniaxial stresses, and the complex multi-axial stress environments. Strain-based uniaxial fatigue analysis is covered in chapter 6, followed by cyclic plasticity theories in chapter 7, and multi-axial strain-based fatigue analysis in chapter 8. Chapters 9-12 cover topics that are not normally covered in general fatigue books, but are discussed in detail in this work. Chapter 9 details Vibration Fatigue Testing and Analysis and discusses the standard fatigue damage spectrum procedure, and methods for calculating fatigue damage were explained for both sinusoidal and random fatigue tests. Chapter 10 contained a treatment of a variety of techniques for conducting life-prediction analyses for seam–welded joints. These methods generally use elementary structural mechanics, which were obtained from LE-FEA. Spot weld life prediction is the subject of chapter 11, where the load-life, linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM), and the stress life approach are explained as the primary methods of spot weld life prediction. In the final chapter 12, the authors discuss the design and analysis of bolted joints, and the basics of VDI 2230, the European standard for the design and analysis of bolted joints. In this chapter, two different FEA models are described: The solid bolt model and the spider bolt method. This book is an excellent reference for both students at the graduate school level, and practicing engineers. It covers in detail the fundamentals theories and the applications of modern computer aided engineering software in the field of durability and fatigue analysis. It also contains well documented examples, which are invaluable tools for applying the concepts that are laid out in this book.
