ASTM E606 Standard Test Method for Strain-Controlled Fatigue Testing

ASTM E606 is a standard test method used to determine the strain-life or stress-life relationship of metallic materials. This method involves applying a cyclic load to a metallic specimen and measuring its response to the load over a period of time.

Introduction to ASTM E606

ASTM E606 is a standard test method used to determine the strain-life or stress-life relationship of metallic materials. This method involves applying a cyclic load to a metallic specimen and measuring its response to the load over a period of time. This test method is useful in evaluating the fatigue life of metallic materials and predicting their performance under cyclic loading conditions. The results obtained through this method are especially used for quality control, reliability check, performance evaluation, and specification purposes.

The ASTM E606 test method is commonly used in various industries, including aerospace, automotive, and manufacturing, to evaluate the fatigue life of metallic materials. It helps in predicting the performance of these materials under cyclic loading conditions and in ensuring their safety and reliability. This method is useful in designing and testing new materials and in determining the causes of failure in existing materials.

ASTM E606 Test Method

The ASTM E606 test method involves the following steps:

Specimen PreparationThe specimen is prepared according to the standard dimensions and specifications. The specimen is typically in the form of a flat bar or cylindrical rod.
Strain or Stress-Controlled Fatigue TestingThe specimen is subjected to a cyclic load under either strain or stress control. In strain-controlled testing, the cyclic load is applied as a sinusoidal waveform with a specified strain amplitude. In stress-controlled testing, the cyclic load is applied as a sinusoidal waveform with a specified stress amplitude. The frequency and waveform of the cyclic load are also specified.
Data AcquisitionDuring the test, the specimen’s response to the cyclic load is measured and recorded. This includes the applied load, strain or stress, and the number of cycles to failure.
Data AnalysisThe recorded data is used to determine the strain-life or stress-life relationship of the material. This relationship is typically plotted on a logarithmic scale to create an S-N curve (stress-life or strain-life curve) that shows the fatigue life of the material for a given stress or strain amplitude.

ASTM E606 Specimens

Specimen detailsThe specimen used in the ASTM E606 test method is typically a flat bar or cylindrical rod made from a metallic material.
Specimen dimensionsThe acceptable specimen thickness for ASTM E606 varies with shape and type of the specimen being used. 
Specimen preparationThe specimen is typically machined to the specified dimensions and surface finish. The ends of the specimen are usually polished to ensure a consistent stress distribution.

ASTM E606 Results

The results of the ASTM E606 test method are reported as the S-N curve or the strain-life or stress-life relationship of the metallic material. The S-N curve provides information about the fatigue life of the material for a given stress or strain amplitude. The curve can be used to predict the number of cycles that the material can withstand before failure under cyclic loading conditions.
