This book presents one of the most comprehensive collections of fatigue data yet available for aluminum alloys, tempers, and products. The data are presented in a consistent format, conveniently arranged by alloy and temper. These data were developed and recorded under consistent conditions and using standard procedures, so valid comparisons can be made among the alloys in the data sets.
The first part of the book explains the origin of the data, fatigue testing and data analysis procedures, and provides guidelines for the use and interpretation of the data. Detailed discussions are included on the effect of temperature, production process variables, shape, orientation, and joining and finishing technologies on aluminum alloy fatigue. Both elevated temperatures and cryogenic temperatures are examined. The remainder of the book comprises more than 1,100 fatigue data curves, all drawn to consistent formats. Types of fatigue curves included are rotating beam, flexural fatigue, axial-stress fatigue, torsional fatigue, and modified Goodman diagrams.
A vast majority of the data had been considered proprietary. This is the first time much of it is made available to the public to assist in a broader understanding of the behavior and application of aluminum alloys.Most comprehensive collections of aluminum fatigue data
