Q.  In diagram shown below, what does angle θ correspond to?
- Published on 14 Sep 15

a. It corresponds to actual stress point
b. It corresponds to point of intersection of fatigue failure line and static failure line
c. It corresponds to actual strain point
d. None of the above

ANSWER: It corresponds to actual stress point

    - For static failure, θ ≤ θL & for fatigue failure = θ ≥ θL

    - The angle θ corresponds to actual stress point.

    θ = tan-1a / σm) or tan-1a / τm)

    - Angle θL corresponds to intersection point of static failure and fatigue failure.
