Fatigue crack growth behavior was investigated in 8090 plate and sheet material under constant-amplitude as well as spectrum loading. The effect of rolling direction, thickness, stress ratio, spectrum load truncation, and omission level on crack growth were studied. 8090-T85113; plate material has significant anisotropy in crack growth behavior under spectrum loading. No significant effect of plate thickness on crack growth was observed. Lower truncation level led to reduced growth rate at a given reference stress intensity. Crack closure level in spectrum load test was higher compared to constant amplitude closure level.
