Fatigue Life Prediction of /Al Composites by Using the Monte-Carlo Simulation Ahn, Jeong-Ju; Kwon, Jae-Do; Kim, Sang-Tae;
It requires uch time and cost to obtain the fatigue crack growth life and fatigue crack growth path morphlogy from the fatigue crack growth tests. In this study, the Monte-Carlo simulation program was developed to predict the fatigue crack growth lofe and fatigue crack growth path morphology of metal matrix composites. Fatigue crack growth lives of 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% and 30% /Al composites were predicted by usign the Monte-Carlo Simulation. And the fatigue crack growth lives of 25% /Al and Almatrix from Monte-carlo simulation were compared with fatigue life from experiments in order to verify the accuracy of Monte-Carlo Simulation program.
