Low-cycle fatigue tests were conducted using elbow specimens with local wall thinning in order to investigate the influences of position of local wall thinning on the low-cycle fatigue behaviors of elbows. Local wall thinning was machined on the inside of the elbow in order to simulate metal loss from erosion corrosion. The local wall thinning was located in three different areas. The elbow specimens were subjected to cyclic in-plane bending under displacement control with internal pressure of 9 MPa. In addition, three-dimensional elastic-plastic analyses were also carried out using the finite element method. As a result, the crack penetration area and the crack growth direction were successfully predicted by the analyses.
