A self-aligning four-point bend testing rig and sample geometry effect in four-point bend fatigue

Abstract:

A self-aligning four-point bend testing rig was designed and made which can minimize the possible misalignment associated with a four-point bend test and be used to study the fatigue of materials both at room and elevated temperatures. The stress distribution between the inner-rollers in a specimen under four-point bend, that is the nominal pure-bending section length, was analyzed with respect to various load-span/specimen-thickness ratios (t/h) and support-span/load-span ratios (L/t) using ...
