When an axial fatigue specimen is subjected to repeated strain cycling about a fixed mean strain value, the mean stress decreases with the number of strain cycles. To explore this type of material behavior, tubular fatigue specimens of A-286 alloy have been axially tested under conditions of controlled strain, and the cycle-dependent relaxation of mean stress measured. Fatigue data for five initial mean stresses are also reported. It was found that, in the case of A-286 alloy, most of the relaxation occurred early in the fatigue life, especially during the first ten cycles.
