Low cycle fatigue tests were conducted using sound elbows made of carbon steel (STPT410). The elbows were subjected to cyclic in-plane bending under displacement control with internal pressure of 9 MPa. The preliminary fatigue tests were conducted under constant cyclic displacements. Then, two test conditions were adopted to investigate the influence of cyclic pre-overload on low cycle behavior of elbow on the basis of the preliminary test results. The fatigue test results were evaluated by using the total usage factor UFTotal (= UFpre +UFpost ), where the UFpre and UFpost correspond to usage factor for δpre and δpost , respectively. The fatigue lives of overloaded elbow pipes were estimated based on the cumulative fatigue damage rule basically from UFpre = 0.2 to UFpre = 0.6. In addition, three-dimensional elastic-plastic analyses were carried out using the finite element method. The crack penetration area and the crack growth direction were successfully predicted by the analyses.
