Prediction of non-propagating fretting fatigue cracks in Ti6Al4V sheet tested under pin-in-dovetail configuration: Experimentation and numerical simulation

Abstract : This paper presents the results of fretting fatigue tests carried out on Ti6Al4V sheet specimens in contact with carbide rod in a cylinder-on-flat contact configuration. A new methodology of carrying out fretting fatigue experiments is proposed and successfully implemented using a pin-in-dovetail and pin-in-hole configuration. The advantage of this configuration is the simplicity and ease of application. The tests are carried out on MTS 810 at different loads, constant frequency (30 Hz) and ambient conditions. These tests reveal that the crack initiation and propagation are dependent on the applied load and the configuration of the contact. At low loads, non-propagating cracks are observed in the pin-in-dovetail configuration using metallurgical microscope. At high loads these cracks become longer but are still non-propagating. Numerical simulation using elastic plastic material model is carried out to determine stress intensity factor and the mode of crack propagation. Maximum principal stress damage criteria approach is used to predict the crack initiation sites under different loads and a strong correlation with experimental results is observed. The crack propagation is simulated using XFEM, which successfully simulates the non-propagating crack length. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
