Fatigue of stainless steel

    Abstract

    The 2009b update of ASME III introduces a new set of fatigue design curves. The new curve for austenitic stainless steels is exactly matching with the one endorsed in 2007 by the US NRC for new designs only. This has a notable effect in usage factor calculation at strain amplitudes below 0.5%. However, experimental results clearly demonstrate that a new air curve would not be needed for the studied stainless steel grades.
