Interaction between normal and shear stresses plays an important role in multiaxial fatigue damage. The aim of this study was to investigate this interaction effect on fatigue behavior of shear failure mode materials under multiaxial loading conditions. In order to model the influence of normal stress on fatigue damage, the present study introduces a method based on the idea that the normal stress acting on the critical plane orientation causes two types of influence, first by affecting roughness induced closure, and second, by a fluctuating normal stress affecting the growth of small cracks in mode II. The summation of these terms could then be used in shear-based critical plane damage models, for example FS damage model, which use normal stress as a secondary input. In order to investigate the effect of the method, constant amplitude load paths with different levels of interaction between the normal and shear stresses were designed for an experimental program. The proposed method was observed to result in improved fatigue life estimations where significant interactions between normal and shear stresses exist.
