Written by the preeminent experts Stan Manson and Gary Halford, this volume addresses methods for predicting and assessing fatigue and for improving the durability of metallic structural components. From concept to application, this book describes the method of strain-range partitioning for analyzing time-dependent fatigue. Creep (time-dependent) deformation is first introduced for monotonic and cyclic loading. Multiple chapters then discuss strain-range partitioning in details for multi-axial loading conditions and how different loading permutations can lead to different micro-mechanistic effects. Notably, the total-strain method of strain-range partitioning (SRP) is described, which is a methodology that sees use in several industries. Examples from aerospace illustrate applications, and methods for predicting time-dependent metal fatigue are critiqued.
S.S. Manson was Professor Emeritus, Case Western Reserve University. Professor Manson joined the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (the precursor to NASA). He is world renowned for his cutting-edge theoretical and experimental work in stress analysis, fatigue, and the development of the basic relation of low-cycle fatigue behavior (the Manson-Coffin law). G.R. Halford (deceased prior to publication of this work) was Senior Scientific Technologist, NASA Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, Ohio. Following his education in the Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics at the University of Illinois under the guidance of Professor JoDean Morrow, he joined the NASA Center in 1966.
