Abstract :
Mechanical components can fail at stresses well below the tensile strength of the material if subjected to alternating loads.



• Failure of ductile materials under alternating loads occurs in a quasi brittle manner, i.e. by crack propagation.

• Failure is preceded by characteristic changes in the material microstructure

• This phenomenon is called ‘Metals Fatigue’.
