Abstract

This article describes the fatigue mechanism and behavior of environmentally induced fatigue and cyclic fatigue. It discusses three basic strength test methods, namely, static, dynamic, and cyclic, along with their analytical relations for determining the fatigue parameters and behavior of ceramics and glasses. The article explains the double torsion and double-cantilever beam fracture mechanics methods, which employ test specimens with relatively large, induced cracks. Crack growth data are typically determined directly by the observation of the crack or by devices that monitor test specimen compliance, such as clip gages and strain gages.
