Please see the fatigue.org website for details: http://www.fatigue.org/Weld/Challenge-3/FDE_weld_info_hanger.ppt
or a Back-up Copy This document contains everything you should need: drawings and picture of the test piece, material, constraint conditions, load application geometry, and the four different fully reversed load levels tested. The tests were conducted at room temperature, and the exaust tube and weld filler is 409 stainless while the wire is cold rolled SAE 1008/1010. All this, and more, are already in the file. The challenge is, again, to both predict the fatigue life and failure location on the test piece.
The pipe material is a 409 Stainless steel. The hanger rod material is SAE1008/1010 cold rolled steel.
Crack Initiation: Strain controlled ASTM E606 axial specimen test results for 409 stainles can be found at http://fde.uwaterloo.ca/Fde/Materials/SSteel/AISI_409_stainless/aisi409.html Information for materials similar to cold rolled SAE1008/1010 can be found at http://fde.uwaterloo.ca/Fde/Materials/Steel/Lowcarbon/lowcarbon.html
