The effect of mean stress on the fatigue behaviour of overhead conductor function of the H/w parameter
UnB, University of Brasília, Department of mechanical Engineering, CEP 70910-900
The objective of this work is to evaluate the effects of mean stress on the fatigue behaviour of an All Aluminium Conductor (AAC Orchid), Aluminium Conductor Steel Reinforced (ACSR Tern), and an Aluminium Conductor Alloy Reinforced (ACAR 750 MCM). In this sense, 72 fatigue tests on overhead conductors were performed using different values of H/w parameter. Based on the experimental results, the parameters which describe the fatigue behaviour of the conductors were determined after generating theirs S-N curves. In the assessment of the mean stress effects on the fatigue life, Goodman and Gerber’s relations were fitted to evaluate the use of such models for the conductors. It was observed that the evaluation of the mean stress effect on the overhead conductor could be made by using the fatigue relations.
