Abstract

An investigation of the effects of fatigue on A533B steel under constant load amplitude is reported in this paper. It was found that the plastic strain of the sample accumulated logarithmically with the number of stress cycles after initial fatigue softening. Based on the fact that plastic strain is often linearly related to the coercivity of material, at least for small changes of H c , a phenomenological relationship has been developed and tested to correlate the number of stress cycles to this magnetic parameter. This result represents the first successful attempt to relate the fatigue exposure directly to a magnetic parameter.
