The fatigue requirement of casting aluminum alloy is varied for different industry, however, it is hard to avoid porosity, shrinkage, or slag during the casting process, leading to uneven quality of casting. the fatigue strength will be influenced by casting porosity, DAS length or stress level. This paper takes single reduction gearbox housing (material for AlSi7Mg0.3) as an example to analyze the prediction algorithm of crack propagation, deduce the key parameters for deciding crack propagation, and carry out a series of experimental studies for casting aluminum fatigue. According to the results of calculation and experiment, the correction coefficient is introduced based on FKM guideline and EN 1999 standard, besides, the evaluation method of fatigue strength has been corrected. As one example, the test results show that if casting aperture diameter more than 0.5 mm, the stress amplitude of fatigue load should not be more than 38.28MPa for load cycles.
