Abstract

In order to predict the fatigue limit of a specimen with an axisymmetric complex surface, a practical method to estimate a stress concentration factor (SCF) of its surface was proposed. The roughness is coarse-grained by removing high frequency components and approximated with a parallel row of a local notch and innumerable average notches. Then, the notches are each approximated with the elliptical holes in the infinite plate, and the SCF is calculated approximately by superposing the elastic solutions of the holes. Moreover, FEM analyses were carried out on the various notch models which consist of the local notch and innumerable average notches to examine the application limit of the present method. Then, the validity of the application limit was examined by using the real roughness and the infinite parallel row of the various notches, and it was shown that the present method was available for the real roughness.
