Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics: 32nd Volume
Slip-band formation and fatigue crack-initiation processes in α-brass were observed by means of atomic force microscopy (AFM), and the effects of the grain size and the stress amplitude were discussed. In a fine grain material, fatigue cracks were initiated only from the slip-bands. In a coarse grain material, however, they were initiated either from the slip-bands or the grain boundaries. The depth of an intrusion drastically increased with its outgrowth to a crack, and with coalescence ofdoi:10.1520/stp10587s fatcat:iykpquwot5hnfoz5de2ace7l5q
