The behaviour of fatigue crack propagation of mild steel pipes, each consisting of an inclined semi-elliptical crack, subjected to axial loading was investigated both experimentally and theoretically. The inclined angle of the crack with respect to the axis of loading varied between 0° and 90°. In the present investigation, the gowth of the fatigue crack was monitored using the AC potential drop technique. The Von Mises yield criterion was applied to define the core region, instead of assuming a core region with a constant distance r from the crack lip. The two commonly employed fracture criteria, i.e., the maximum tensile stress and the minimum strain energy density criteria, were modified by adopting Von Mises elasto-plastic boundary. The results obtained using the innproved fracture criteria are, in most cases, in better agreement with test results as compared with those obtained using the commonly employed fracture criteria.
