Abstract

Material damage caused by distributed microscopic voids is an important topic for wide variety of engineering problems. The evolution of these distributed microscopic voids and their effects on the mechanical behaviour of materials have been studied by the Continuum Damage Mechanics (CDM) approach. Aluminum alloys are extensively used in engineering structures, aircraft constructions etc., due to their high strength-to-weight ratio. Aluminum alloy 6061 is the most widely used alloy and is often used in truck and marine frames. Study on fatigue life prediction of aluminium alloy 6061-T6 using CDM approach is scarce. Therefore, the objective of present research is to use CDM approach for predicting the strain life of aluminum alloy 6061-T6 specimen subjected to stress ratio of −1 in the strain range of 0.2 to 2% at room temperature.
