Title: Influence of scatter of cyclic properties of material on operational endurance of construction
Author: KLIMAN, V., KEPKA, M., VACLAVIK, J

Abstract: In this study we propose a simple computing procedure to determine in probabilistic form the material constants that enter fatigue-life calculation, namely fatigue strength (ductility) coefficient σ’f (ε’f) and fatigue strength (ductility) exponent b (c). The procedure, which assumes log-normal distribution of fatigue life on the S-N curve, is based on the shift of the regression line (representing the fatigue-life curve) to the desired value of the probability of occurrence, and yields a set of material constants σ’f, b, ε’f, c ranging in probability of occurrence from 1 % to 99 %. Suitable application of this procedure to the life estimation model under random loading conditions yields the fatigue-life distribution function taking into consideration the scatter of cyclic material properties.
The application of this method to evaluate fatigue reliability of a vehicle’s construction is also presented. Based on the proposed methodology, the maximum permissible value of the scatter of a welded joint’s cyclic properties was determined to ensure that the probability of premature fatigue failure occurrence would not exceed the allowable value.
