Abstract

An empirical prediction method for the fatigue strength considering the effect of porosity was proposed. We prepared six types of specimen of ADC12 high pressure die cast aluminum alloy, where the casting condition was different to each other, and obtained the S-N curve for each specimen type from the fatigue test. The porosity volume fraction for all specimens was calculated using the X-ray CT images. The image-based finite element analysis was also carried out for all specimens to evaluate the maximum first principal stress corresponding to the nominal stress amplitude in the fatigue test. The maximum stress was referred to as the local stress amplitude, and its ratio to the nominal stress amplitude was defined as the local stress concentration factor. We modified the S-N data by using the local stress amplitude instead of the nominal stress amplitude, and obtained a single master S-N curve. From the statistical investigation, the local stress concentration factor was found to be determined empirically by the porosity volume fraction. The relationship was identified by the least-square approximation. Consequently, we found that the fatigue strength was predicted from the porosity volume fraction via the local stress amplitude and the master S-N curve.
