Anotace
The project was directed to study the effect of positive mean stress and mean strain on the decisive stages and characteristics of the fatigue process in advanced structural materials (316L austenitic stainless steel and austempered ductile cast iron). Main attention was paid to the effect of cycle asymmetry on short crack growth mechanisms and kinetics, on lifetime and plastic strain localization in low cycle regime and on fatigue life and fatigue limit under high cycle fatigue cycling.
