Low cycle fatigue cracks aremainly detected at discontinuous welded locations with high stresses under repeated cyclic static loads due to cargo loading and unloading. Theoretical and analytical methods have been used for evaluation of local stress and strain which have an effect on a prediction of fatigue life, but those have difficulties of considering stress concentration at notched location and complicated material behavior of welded joint or heat affected zone. Electronic speckle pattern interferometry(ESPI) system is nondestructive and non-contact measurement system which can get the relatively accurate full field strain at critical positions such as welded zone and structural discontinuous location.In this study, local strain was measured on welded cruciform joint by ESPI system and then low cycle fatigue test was performed. Effect of local strain on low cycle fatigue life was examined by measured values using ESPI system. Moreover, experimental fatigue life was compared with established S-N curves using theoretical local strain and stress calculated by Neuber`s rule.
