Abstract

Effect of plant oil on the fatigue strength of a squeeze cast Al-Si-Mg alloy was investigated. Crack growth rate was higher in plant oil than in air, inducing a decrease in fatigue strength. The reason included is explained from the viewpoint of high water absorbency of plant oils, on basis of hydrogen enhanced localized plasticity.
