A note on the crack analogue model for fretting fatigue

Ciavarella, M. and Macina, G. (2003) A note on the crack analogue model for fretting fatigue International Journal of Solids and Structures, 40, (4), pp. 807-825. (doi:10.1016/S0020-7683(02)00652-2).

Record type: Article


The contact of a flat punch over a half-plane under constant normal loads, and oscillating tangential and bulk loads is studied, with the aim to improve the crack analogue (CA) model for fretting fatigue (FF) (Acta Mater. 46(9) (1998) 2955). New analytical results are found for a range of conditions, finding the effect of bulk loads and of partial slip which were not considered in the original CA model. Implications for the FF life assessment methodology are found to be significant.
