A study on the through crack behavior of aluminum alloy with cantilever beam type under variable load Yoo, Heonil; Kim, Yeob-Rae;
This paper examines the crack growth behavior of 7075-T651 and 5052-H32 aluminum alloy under high-low block loading condition. The cantilever beam type specimen with a chevron notch is used in this study. The crack growth and closure ae investigated by compliance method. The applied stress ratios are R=0.15, 0.0, -0.15 and R=-0.15, 0.0, 0.15. The crack growth rate was found to increase as the load amplitude increases. However, was almost independent on the stress ratio. The experimental constants of 7075-T651 and 5052-H32 in Paris law were c`=1-1.3, respectively. of 7075-T651 and 5052-H32 becomes smaller as the stress ratio decreases. It seems that the crack closure affects .
