Hydraulic autofrettage as a means of increasing fatigue life of components charged with internal high-pressure is establishing itself progressively in the filed of off-highway engines. During computational layout of this process-step, consideration of anisotropic material behaviour is of primary importance. Advanced development-tools for assessment of fatigue life already enable the integration of resulting compressive residual stresses on basis of kinematic material models. So far local quite possibly directional component-strength (e.g. due to prior autofrettage) has not been taken into account among standards to evaluation of durability for forged components. In the context of a joint development project this gap has been closed by Hirschvogel Automotive Group, Engineering Center Steyr GmbH & Co. KG and Transvalor SA. Read more
