In this study, the phenomenon of residual stress relaxation from foreign object damage (FOD) is numerically simulated using a hybrid explicit¿implicit finite-element method. The effects of cycle fatigue loadings on stress relaxation were studied. FOD is first simulated by firing a 3 mm cube impacting onto a plate made of titanium alloy Ti-6Al-4V at 200 m/s. The FOD impact produces two distinct stress concentrations: one is compressive directly beneath the impact site; the other is tensile around the outer edge of the impact. The plate was then assumed to be subjected to a cyclic fatigue loading. The stress relaxation was investigated under a range of stress ratios and maximum applied stresses. Two different material models were considered for the simulations, namely an elastic¿perfectly plastic model and a non-linear kinematic hardening model.
