This paper discusses stress intensity factor (SIF) calculations for surface cracks in round bars subjected to combined torsion and bending loadings.Different crack aspect ratios, nib, ranging from 0 0 to 1.2 and relative crack depths, a/D, ranging from 0, I to 0.6 were considered Since the loading was non-symmetrical for torsion loadings, a whole finite element model was constructed, Then, the individual and combined bending and torsion loadings were remotely applred to the model. The equ~valent SIF method, F ; ~ ,w as then used explicitly to combine the individual SlFs from the bending and torsion loadings A comparison was then carried out with the combined SIF, F*FE obtained using the finite element analysis (FEA) under similar loadings. It was found that the equivalent SIF method successfully predicted the combined SIF for Mode I However, discrepancies between the results determined from the different approaches occurred when FIII was involved It was also noted that the predicted F*FE FEA was higher than the F*EQ predicted through the equivalent SIF method due to the difference in crack face interactions.
