Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A comprehensive review of cumulative fatigue damage theories for metals and their alloys, emphasizing the approaches developed between the early 1970s to the early 1990s, can be found in this paper, where the authors grouped these theories into six categories: linear damage rules, nonlinear damage curve and two-stage linearization approaches; life curve modification methods; approaches based on crack growth concepts; continuum damage mechanics models; and energy-based theories.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the microstructure-defect-property relationship under cyclic loading for a TiAl6V4 alloy processed by selective laser melting is investigated. And the results show that the micron sized pores mainly affect fatigue strength, while residual stresses have a strong impact on fatigue crack growth.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Two simple algorithms for performing rainflow counting are presented and the first algorithm is suitable for microcomputer devices that are placed in vehicles to record field data.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the current status of research and development on laser shock processing of metals, also known as laser peening, using Q-switched high power lasers is reviewed and the influence of processing parameters on the laser-induced shock waves in metal components are discussed and analyzed.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the effects of defects, inclusions and inhomogeneities on the fatigue strength of metals are reviewed, from the Isibasi model and the Frost model to recent models based on fracture mechanics.
