The paper summarized some experimental main results of dynamic buckling under increasing compression load. The buckling behavior of 304 stainless steel was investigated using Euler and Johnson formulas, which is the most commonly used in industrial applications. It has been verified that metallic materials can exhibit non-linear buckling behavior with mechanical properties dependency. This behavior yield a non-linear model which based on Hong’s model but using the mechanical properties with cycles to failure. It was observed that the proposed model gave safe predictions while the Hong’s model yields non satisfactory predictions of critical buckling loads and also design electrical LASER alarm system to avoid the failure occurs in the specimen when access to critical buckling load.

In this present work, the behavior of AA7349 aluminum alloy under constant and cumulative creep-fatigue interaction has been studied by using an electrical system designed and built in order to investigate creep-fatigue interaction at different stress levels and temperatures. An hour-glass shaped specimen of AA7349 aluminum alloy has been subjected to a constant and variable creep-fatigue tests performed under rotating bending loads and stress control at stress ratio R=-1.
The results of the creep –fatigue life have been studied byMiner rule and compared with the proposed and experimental methods. It was shown that theMinerrule and proposed modelgive reasonable results and they are in a good agreement with the experimental fatigue lifetimes.
