Fatigue — Fatigue testing of welded components — Guidance (ISO/TR 14345:2012, IDT)
This Technical Report gives guidance on best practice for fatigue testing under constant- or variable-amplitude loading of welded components in the medium- and high-cycle regimes, corresponding to applied loading that results in nominal stresses that do not exceed yield. Low-cycle fatigue testing under strain control is not specifically covered, although the same test specimens can be suitable for either low- or high-cycle fatigue testing. The different steps involved in the manufacture and preparation of the welded specimens and the final presentation and evaluation of the test results are also covered.
This Technical Report does not cover corrosion or high-temperature fatigue testing.
