Metal Fatigue Failures

Metal fatigue is a mode of failure resulting from fluctuating/alternating stress. A small crack starts at a point of high stress or high stress concentration. When the applied stress is tensile or pulling, it tends to open the crack. If the crack opening stress is of sufficient magnitude, the crack will grow in size. Metal fatigue fractures leave visual characteristic that are usually easily recognizable.
