In this paper, the fatigue energy dissipation of Gravity Casting (GC) and Laser-based Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) AlSi10Mg alloys under cyclic loading are investigated. The increase in surface temperature related to the energy dissipation effect is decoupled and used to predict the fatigue limits of GC and LPBF AlSi10Mg alloys as being 55.8% UTS and 33.9% UTS, respectively. The energy dissipation rate is obtained by solving the one-dimensional thermal diffusion problem. This energy dissipation is

The energy dissipation related to fatigue damage for LPBF specimens is observed to be higher than that of GC specimens, which indicates worse fatigue performance. The fatigue damage entropy is employed to predict the fatigue life of both GC and LPBF AlSi10Mg alloys, which has a good agreement with the results of a traditional fatigue experiment.
