Abstract
The influence of crack path configuration on its growth rate is considered. The straight and zigzag-like crack models are compared for the different stages of propagation and various loading conditions. Comparison of numerical results based on elasto-plastic finite element analysis and experimental data has been presented and discussed. The possible modification of classical fatigue lifetime prediction equations are discussed with aim to take into consideration the kinking effect at the initial stage of crack propagation.
