Special Issue Description

The fatigue life of austenitic steel can be characterized by Manson–The coffin curve or Wöhler curve. Both these characteristics depend on temperature and environment. The dependence on the environment increases with increasing temperature. Figure 20 shows the Manson–Coffin curve of two types of 316L steel in a wide domain of plastic strain amplitudes at room temperature (Polák et al., 1994). 316L-TH steel had a larger grain size than 316L-VZ. In 316L-VZ steel, a small fraction of sigma-phase has been identified. In the low-cycle domain, both curves coincide while in the high-cycle domain the slope of the 316L-TH steel is higher and the fatigue life shifts to lower the number of cycles in comparison with 316L-VZ steel. These changes in Manson–Coffin curve are connected with easier initiation of the fatigue cracks in large grains of 316L-TH steel. Longer fatigue cracks are initiated than in 316L-VZ steel and they propagate more rapidly.


Manuscript Submission information

Manuscripts should be submitted online via the manuscript Engine. Once you register on APID, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline.
All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the email address:[email protected] for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a Double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for the submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
