Fatigue Analysis Screening, Method B

Fatigue Analysis Screening, Method B

thread794-423510: fatigue curve creation using ASME VIII Div 2
Hi All,

I have been stuck at understanding the Fatigue Screening Criteria - method B [] step # 3. I.e to calculate N(C1 S).[Eq. 5.18]
Where do we get N ? Does this N need to be multiplied by C1 (as obtained in Step #2) and than multiply it by S (Allowable Stress) ?
I just need to multiply C1 with S ?

RE: Fatigue Analysis Screening, Method B

You are calculating N using a stress of C1*S via the S-N curve.

RE: Fatigue Analysis Screening, Method B

Thanks @TGS4 a bunch. Now I am stuck at Step # 4: While calculating, P/C1 x Sa(deltaNp)/S, I have two problems:

1- Units. P/S cancels pressure units but Sa(deltaNp) again gives pressure units hence the final value has some pressure units instead of unit less number.(which is to be compared with deltaPn)
Sa(deltaNp) I suppose is the Stress amplitude calculated via using deltaNp in Annex 3-F from S-N curve using figures or ci coefficients(ASME 2015 or lesser versions).

2- What is the difference in between Full design Pressures cycles including startups and shutdowns and Full operating pressure cycles excluding startup and shutdowns ?. A component goes into full pressure design cycle when it starts from 0 and goes to let's 2 MPa of design pressure. While mostly all equipments go to Full operating pressure cycles and rarely goes into full design pressures.
Plz explain to me with an example as I couldn't understand terminologies used.

RE: Fatigue Analysis Screening, Method B

1. DeltaPn is in units of pressure. Your supposition, though, is correct.

2. You just need to plot out your cycles. Sometimes an operating pressure cycle may not go to zero, whereas it will when there is a shutdown.

White Paper - Addressing Tooling and Casting Requirements at the Design Stage
Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
White Paper - The Other Side of Design for Assembly
Assembly level constraints need to be satisfied before the design can move downstream. This white paper will go through the various assembly level issues, which need to be tackled by various organizations on a regular basis. Know more about DFMPro, a design for assembly software. Download Now
