Fatigue resistance evaluation of high Mn-TWIP steel through damage mechanics: a new method based on stiffness evolution
The work presented here deals with the implementation of a new methodology that allows fast and reliable determination of the fatigue strength. It is based on monitoring the specimen stiffness changes at different stress levels, as an indicator of the evolution of fatigue damage. This new rapid fatigue test uses techniques available in many laboratories, as the DIC (Digital Image Correlation) technique and common extensometers. Moreover, the obtained data are easier to handle than infrared cameras or acoustic emission systems data, and the experimental procedure to determine the fatigue limit is more evident than in the self-heating method.
