September 15, received: Information related to the author. Fatigue Failure If a molded component or material is subjected to a repetitive load in a practical-usage environment, failure ie, cracking will take place after a certain number of cycles at a load much lower than its static yield stress. It is the satm of aastm work to provide a picture of convenient apparatus which enables evaluation of fatigue of plastics in the presence of chemicals.

As a result of this mechanism, a clam shell pattern is generated.

Fatigue Test

June 03, accepted: In order to prevent the generation of cracks which constitute the start point for fatigue failure: Welded sections readily give satm to the start of fatigue failure, and for this reason, measures should be implemented to prevent repetitive loading at such sections. Already have an account? Horizontal oscillation as a result of this centrifugal force is eliminated through the action of a leaf spring, thus ensuring that the test piece is exposed only to an oscillating load in the vertical direction.

During testing, the number of load repetitions or oscillations until fatigue failure occurs in the test piece is measured for each stress or loadand a graph is created with stress on the y axis and the number of repetitions on the x axis.


The test piece is to be as shown on the right.

ASTM Test Machines

Railway Technical Research Institute, J. Register Already have an account? We also request that sufficient attention also be paid to laws, regulations, and industrial rights. Plastics with superior fatigue durability should be used.

Test Types

Shear stress is the main type of stress that directly affects failure, and as a result of this, sliding occurs between sections of the material; furthermore, disintegration then occurs when countless minute fracture zones are formed. This phenomenon is referred to as material fatigue; and the corresponding failure, as fatigue failure.

Toyo Seiki model B max. The apparatus is substantially of ASTM D T A Type, and is equipped with devise for trickling ast, chemicals upon the specimen, with an electronic system for continuously recording the dynamic load, and with three pulleys for reducing the speed.

Contact with oils, detergents, and any other chemical agents that attack plastic has a significant detrimental effect on fatigue durability, and this should therefore be avoided. Testing standards and conditions Standard: The trickling of chemicals is processed by conveying the liquid from the storage tank to a burette and adjusting the stopcock so as to make the liquid drop on the middle portion of the specimen at a controlled rate.

May 04, Released: Customers are requested to independently determine the suitability of our materials for their products. Surfaces resulting from fatigue failure can be identified by the clam-shell marking which is distinctive to this phenomenon. May 04, [Advance Publication] Released: The stress being exerted on the test piece or the applied load can be varied by changing the rotation radius of the unbalanced mass. Journal of the Society of Materials Science, Japan.


Although this tester generates a constant stress, the corresponding amplitude is not fixed as this varies in accordance with the elasticity of astj test piece.

When the unbalanced mass is rotated by the motor, centrifugal force asym exerted on the axis of rotation. Fatigue durability is dependent on the corresponding stress value, and for this reason, the occurring stress should be lowered by reducing the load or by implementing design factors which distribute this load.

Hong Kong Shanghai Thailand. The portion is wound with suitable cloth to insure uniform contact of the liquid with the specimen.

If a molded component or material is subjected to a repetitive load in a practical-usage environment, failure ie, cracking will take place after a certain number of cycles at a load much lower than its static yield stress. Previous article Next article.

Journal home Journal issue About the journal. In the experiments with polyacetal f671 polyamide in various concentration of hydrochloric acid, the apparatus proved efficient in evaluating fatigue of plastics under the influence of the liquid chemicals.
