To implement all fatigue tests, a fatigue testing machine of sort (AVERY 7305) plane bending was utilized, with a constant amplitude, plane bending fatigue tests were performed at room temperature (25[degrees]C) under stress ratio (R = -1).
Figure 12 shows that the shear stress and normal stress ratio change law of the measuring points A and B are different; the ratio of measuring point B is a "single peak" distribution state, and the measuring point A ratio change law is "wave" distribution state.
