... relative to the stress in the Design 1 fillet. For a static torsion loading of 1356 N-m (1000 ft-lbf), the maximum von Mises stress in the Design 6 fillet was 40.1% greater than the maximum von Mises stress in the Design 1 fillet. Delivering 250 kW (330 hp) at 1000 rpm, the 40.1% higher stress in the...

... Abstract In a shaft subjected to reversed torsional stresses, failure resulted from the gradual development of fatigue cracks from opposite sides of the shaft. These broke out from origins located adjacent to the fillets at the start of the square section. The remaining uncracked material which...

Torsion fatigue fractures may have started from these notches. Relaxation then contributed positively through recovery and recrystallization. Such damage occurs less...
