Wire failure prediction for a rotary beam fatigue tester
Case Studies in Nondestructive Testing
Place of Publication
This work investigates methods for predicting imminent wire failure during fatigue testing.
Sensors that measure changes in vibration, displacement, and infrared signatures were explored, and in-situ video recording was studied for its ability to capture changes in the shape of the wire.
Video recording appears to be the most promising of the methods investigated.
It has promise for both single and multi-strand configurations.
Further investigations could include image/video processing.
Could be used to determine if the number of fatigue cycles to complete fracture is an accurate measure of the fatigue life of multi-stranded wire.
