On The Influence of Residual Stresses on Fatigue Fracture of Railway Axles AUREL RĂDUłĂ residual thermal stresses by mean of finite element method, and the number of cycles to fracture, using the closed form stresses in the axle, the dynamic loads have been taken into consideration as a static model [1]. Abstract. The general role played by thermal and residual (TR) stresses in fracture mechanics is still unclear. It is sometimes argued (a) that in the linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM) regime TR stresses are secondary (rather than primary) i.e. that the overall loading is relaxed (rather than maintained) as well as redistributed as the crack grows, and (b) that because TR stresses do Cited by: Masoudi Nejad and colleagues examined the fatigue crack growth and life estimation of train bandage wheel under the influence of contact stresses and thermal residual : Reza Masoudi Nejad.

The stresses obtained have a quasi C-shaped profile with tensile stresses in both the rail head and the rail foot, and variable compressive longitudinal stresses in the web region [5]. Fracture Mechanics of Composites with Residual Thermal Stresses The problem of calculating the energy release rate for crack growth in an arbitrary composite in the presence of residual stresses is consid-ered. First, a general expression is given for arbitrary, mixed traction and displacement boundary conditions. This general result is then ap-.

It was found that both friction and residual stresses are important efiects and must be included to determine the true interfacial fracture toughness [1]. A single-flbre test similar to the microbond test is the single-flbre, pull-out test [3].
