An experimental method is proposed for determination of the characteristics of both mode I and mode II cyclic crack resistance of flat specimens for different values of the coefficient of load-cycle asymmetry. For this scheme, which is realized on an apparatus for fatigue testing in tension-compression, the K-calibration was obtained by the finite-element method. The scheme was tested on aluminum alloy AMg6N specimens.
