Abstract

The effects of pitting corrosion on very high cycle fatigue behavior of aluminum alloys were discussed. The results indicated that the presence of pre-existing corrosion pits, produced by 1-day, 4-day and 7-day immersion in salt water significantly reduces the fatigue life of the alloy by a factor of 10-100. It was also found that the pittings accelerated crack initiation and promoted multiple-site damage.
