I’m doing an LCF in Abaqus and used the Paris law to calculate the values of C3 and C4. How to find C1 and C2 values or where to find them..?
What will the value of power (BK or power-law) be?

I hope you’re doing well. Generally, some specific parameters and material properties are nowhere to be found except:

  • You search and find them in the articles and previous works that have been done by others.
  • Search in the manufacturing companies and may find what you’re looking for in their websites and datasheets.
  • Or you do an experimental test by yourself according to the standards.

You may find something by doing a simple search on the web, but the best ways to find these sorts of parameters are the ones I have told you.

Also, I suggest checking this link:

Simulation of Fatigue in Abaqus

you may find something useful in it. It is worth it.

Best wishes.
