LCF curves for steel.

LCF curves for steel.

LCF curves for steel.

I need help locating textbook LCF curves for A516 and A216 steel.  Any grade is acceptable.  And any temperature is acceptable.......for the moment.
I have searched and googled all I can, and now it is going to cost $$$ to obtain curves through testing.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

"Low Cycle Fatigue"

I am assuming there are some sort of curves out there, for steels with virtually the same composition as A516 & A216, that I can obtain for less money then what a 1-2 month long test would cost........some kind of published work with these curves.

Thanks again for any help.

RE: LCF curves for steel.

The ASM Handbook Vol. 19 reports Low Cycle Fatigue data in the form of graphs only for Cr-Mo ferritic steels. No results are reported for carbon steels.


RE: LCF curves for steel.

rats, so this type of data is not easy to obtain for the public?
I've only got about a day left to find it before we give the "goahead" for the testing....pushing the project completion date back.

Thanks Goahead
