## A simple finding on variable amplitude (Gassner) fatigue SN curves obtained using Miner's rule for unnotched or notched specimen Vrije Universiteit Brussel

In this note, starting from the SN curve under Constant Amplitude (CA) for the fatigue life of the uncracked (plain) specimen, we obtain that Gassner curves for Variable Amplitude (VA) loading using the simple Palmgren-Miner's law are simply shifted CA curves. Further, using the Critical Distance Method in a very clean and powerful form proposed by Susmel and Taylor for VA loading, we find similar result for notched specimen, the spectrum ...

## Generalized definition of “crack-like” notches to finite life and SN curve transition from “crack-like” to “blunt notch” behavior Vrije Universiteit Brussel

We start by generalizing the concept of “crack-like” notches to finite life. We note that, according to the well established Critical Distance Method (originally proposed by Neuber and Peterson), SN curves of all notches are very close to SN curves for cracked specimen, up to a certain number of cycles N∗, above which they tend to the SN curve of the uncracked/unnotched (plain) specimen, reduced by the stress concentration factor Kt. We ...
