|Abstract||Corrosion leading to fatigue crack nucleation and crack growth is considered to be among the most significant degradation mechanisms in aging structures. Especially in aircrafts, widespread corrosion pits on the surface and hidden within the joints are an important cause for damage since fatigue cracks are observed to nucleate and propagate from these corrosion pits. It is known that fatigue properties of any material depend on the homogeneity of the material mostly the surface uniformity. Any irregularity present may cause fatigue crack initiation at a stress comparably lower than that shown in a homogeneous material. Fatigue life estimation in stress controlled condition is done by conducting Moore test. The environmental exposure of aluminum alloys generally shifts the curve to a lower stress region and reduction in life. In several cases S-N curve of pre-corroded condition shows some lowering of the curve from the original one due to the presence of corrosion pits . The effect of corrosion in fatigue life of pre-corroded 7020-T7 aluminum alloy has been studied and presented in this investigation. As the fatigue failure process exploits the weakest links (discontinuities) within the test material, which act as nucleation sites for crack origins, the fatigue properties of un-corroded and pre-corroded 7020-aluminum alloy in 3.5% NaCl have been studied and compared in this project. The criteria being the S-N curve, fatigue life, endurance limit, corrosion mechanism, stress concentration factor, SEM fractograph and probable crack initiation cause and spot. Round specimen generally used in classical fatigue tests for endurance limit estimation have been used in this experiment. S-N curve is plotted by using Moore’s rotating cantilever beam type fatigue testing machine. The tests are conducted in un-corroded specimen and in pre-corroded specimen and then results are compared. Also the spot of crack initiation is predicted by using fractographs under SEM. The pit dimensions are measured using an elliptical model and a relation between stress intensity factor and life is plotted. The results of the experiment confirm the findings of literatures referred, along with that, the fatigue and crack initiation behavior of pre-corroded 7020-Al alloy has been found experimentally.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
