Abstract

Recent works in mechanical fatigue consider that a threshold of entropy exists, the fracture fatigue entropy. The determination of this quantity is usually done considering empirical models for the mechanical power estimation. In this paper, we experimentally observe the existence of a threshold of entropy and exergy in low cycle fatigue for a flat Al-2024 specimen avoiding the use of a model, solely measuring the heat generated during a fatigue test. Results are then compared considering various hypotheses (1D heat dissipation with convection and radiation considered as heat sources, and, heat transfer from a fin with convection and radiation as boundary conditions) to an empirical mechanical model known in the literature and deviations between them are discussed.
