The tests and investigations have been carried out in the area of “Multiaxial Fatigue” with an objective to improve the fatigue damage assessment procedure and design rules. Fatigue tests were conducted on tubular specimens of SA333Gr.6 material under combined axial-torsion in-phase/ out-of-phase load combinations with triangular, sine and trapezoidal load waveforms. A software tool has been developed for the evaluation of multiaxial fatigue damage parameter for analyzing the tests data using invariant based fatigue model of ASME Sec.III code. The fatigue crack initiation life was predicted using the best fit axial fatigue life curve (without use of safety factors). The analyses for fatigue crack initiation life assessment have also been carried out using critical plane based models. A critical plane based model has been proposed for the prediction of fatigue life for tests carried out on tube specimens.
