Item Description: This paper was published in a leading international journal (IF: 2.0. Citations 2) and stems from a 3 year EPSRC funded programme investigating the interaction of damage mechanisms at high temperatures at stress raising features. The research offers a new methodology for predicting both fatigue crack initiation and propagation behaviour in a titanium alloy based only on stress-strain deformation behaviour. The lifing approach described is now widely used within Rolls-Royce and has been utilised for a range of in service components (Advocate, steve.williams@rolls-royce.com) and also led to a four year programme fully funded by Rolls-Royce (Total value £420k).
