Using the Atzori-Lazzarin criterion, the author has recently proposed a unified model for Fretting Fatigue denominated Crack-Like Notch Analogue-CLNA model, considering only two possible behaviours: either "crack-like" or "large blunt notch". In a general FF condition, the former condition is treated with a single contact problem corresponding to the MIT Crack Analogue (CA) improved in some details also by the author. The latter, with a simple peak stress condition, i.e. a simple Notch Analogue model, simply stating that below the fatigue limit, infinite life is predicted for any size of contact. In the typical condition of constant normal load and in phase oscillating tangential and bulk loads, both limiting conditions are immediately written, and the CLNA model permits to collapse the effect of the contact loads on a single closed form equation (differently from many other models which do not permit this flexibility). For not too large contact areas ("crack-like" contact) no dependence at all on geometry is predicted, but only on 3 load factors (bulk stress, tangential load and average pressure) and size of the contact. Only in the "large blunt notch" region occurring typically only at very large sizes of contact does size-effect disappear, but the dependence on all other factors including geometry remains. The model compares favourably with some experimental results in the literature. In this paper, some aspects of the CLNA model are further elucidated. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
