This set of Mechanical Behaviour Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Low Cycle Fatigue”.
1. By decreasing the number of cycles, the allowable stress ________
c) Remains constant
d) First Increases then decreases
Explanation: Lower the number of cycles, the higher will be allowable stress. It can be explained by S-N curve.
2. What term is used for a fatigue occurs with less than about 104 or 105 cycles?
a) High cycle fatigue
b) Low cycle fatigue
c) Fatigue limit
d) Stage II fatigue
Explanation: The fatigue that occurs with less than about 104 or 105 cycles, is known as low cycle fatigue. It occurs when local maximum tensile stress around the crack tip is above the yield stress.
3. What is the limit for low cycle fatigue?
a) 100 cycles
b) 103 cycles
c) 104 cycles
d) 1010 cycles
Explanation: Fatigue which occurs below 104 or 105 cycles is low cycle fatigue. Thermal conditions are considered here.
4. LCF conditions are frequently created where the cyclic stresses are of ________ origin.
Explanation: LCF occurs below 104 cycles. These conditions are frequently created by thermal origin. It is an important consideration in high temperature systems.
5. For what purpose LCF is an important consideration?
a) Subzero systems
b) High temperature systems
c) High load systems
d) Wet systems
Explanation: LCF is created by stresses of thermal origin. It is an important consideration in high temperature systems.
6. Which law can predict the fatigue life in LCF conditions?
b) Wood’s law
c) Orowan’s law
d) Coffin-Manson law
Explanation: Coffin-Manson law can predict the fatigue life in LCF conditions. A log-log plot between plastic strain ranges against the cycles is taken.
7. A log-log plot between the plastic strain range against the number of fatigue cycles yields ____________
a) Straight line
Explanation: A log-log plot between the plastic strain ranges against the number of fatigue cycles yields a straight line. It can be shown by Coffin-Manson law.
8. A smaller value of x results in _________ value of fatigue life.
Explanation: A smaller value of x results in a larger value of fatigue life. x is fatigue ductility exponent.
9. The fatigue ductility exponent x is always positive.
Explanation: x is fatigue ductility exponent. It varies between -0.5 and -0.7. Its smaller value gives a large fatigue life.
10. The fatigue ductility exponent x is always positive.
Explanation: LCF is an important consideration in systems which undergo thermal transient. These include the components of the power plant.
