The fatigue growth behaviour for surface crack in welded joints under combined tension and bending stresses is studied by fatigue crack growth tests of 16MnR steel in bow specimens. In this present paper the Newman-Raju empirical equation was used for the stress intensity factor of a surface crack. The experimental results show that the Paris’ relationship between crack growth rate and stress intensity factor range under tension and bending fatigue stresses is still valid, and the relationship between the Paris’ coefficients Ca and Cc can be represented as Cc = (0.89)mCa.
