Abstract
A new two-step phase shifting interferometry technique for evaluation of a fatigue process zone (FPZ) in notched metal and alloy specimens is proposed. In comparison with well-known destructive and nondestructive methods evaluating FPZ, this technique possesses higher accuracy and performance and allows defining the FPZ size for notched specimens made of metals and alloys with low, moderate or high plasticity. The technique is fulfilled by retrieval of a total surface relief of a studied notched specimen, extraction of surface roughness and waviness phase maps from the retrieved surface relief, calculation of a surface roughness parameter Ra spatial distribution and definition of the FPZ size by using an extracted surface roughness phase map. Obtained experimental results have confirmed assumption that the surface roughness of notched specimens after cyclic loading reaches its maximum values at the FPZ boundary. This boundary is produced as the narrow strip containing pixels possessing the maximum values on the spatial distribution of the roughness parameter Ra near a notch root. The basic distances d* defining the FPZ sizes were measured for notched specimens made of a low-carbon steel and aluminum alloys 2024–Т6 and 7075–T3. Results of the distances d* measurement are very close to respective results obtained with the help of other methods for the FPZ evaluation.
