Application of a Newman model to a fatigue life prediction of finite-width steel specimen with a single edge crack

Piotr Artymiak
In the paper an application of a Newman model to fatigue life predictions of steel specimens with single edge crack is presented. At the begining a short description of the Newman model is given. Then problems which have to be solved are pointed. Some initial modifications were introduced to the Newman model. Calibration of the model was performed using experimental data. To make a preliminarily verification of the model some predictions were done. On this stage the model was found as adequate for realization of this work aims.
