Abstract

The influence of alternating and mean stress intensity on fatigue crack propagation in metals has been studied in relation to the different microstructure, mean (or maximum) stress intensity and specimen thickness, particularly in the range of medium and high growth rates. Four general mechanisms of fatigue crack growth have been detected, namely, situation formation, cleavage, void coalescence, and intergranular separation.
