Abstract

This article is an atlas of fractographs that helps in understanding the causes and mechanisms of fracture of low-carbon steels and in identifying and interpreting the morphology of fracture surfaces. The fractographs illustrate the following: the intergranular fracture, bending impact fracture, brittle fracture, tensile-test fracture, transgranular fracture, cleavage fracture, delayed fracture, corrosion fatigue, inclusion morphology, fatigue crack propagation, and in-service fatigue fracture of various automotive components. These components include tie rod adjusting sleeves, automotive bolts, hydraulic jack shafts, crank handle collars, boiler tubes, drive shafts, bicycle pedal axles, lift-truck hydraulic-piston rods, and steel springs.
