Abstract

In this study, the finite element software ANSYS was used to analyze the mechanical behavior of local sharp-notched circular tubes under cyclic bending. The local sharp-notched depths include: 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8 and 1.0 mm, and the local sharp-notched directions include: 0, 30, 60 and 90 degrees. According to the experimental result, the notch depth has no influence on the moment-curvature relationship. But the notch depth increases, the unsymmetrical phenomenon of the ovalization-curvature relationship becomes more obvious and the speed of ovalization accelerates. In addition, the ovalization-curvature relationship becomes symmetrical when the direction angle increases. The ANSYS analysis was compared with the experimental finding. Although some differences between the experimental and simulated results, but both trends were very similar.
