Effect of service conditions upon the processes of metal mould fatigue fracture

Marek Cieśla, Tadeusz Lamber, Jerzy Okrajni, Marek Plaza
The paper presents some results of investigations into the crack nucleation and development due to thermal-mechanical fatigue of metallic moulds. A practical example have been taken to discuss a concept of the fatigue life prediction with an application of material simulation tests and modelling approach to a subject.
