... the lower roller path on which the superstructure of a walking drag-line excavator slewed. The cracking, which ran horizontally, developed at the junction of the underside of the rail head with the web and originated at surface defects in the form of grooves present on the castings. It was concluded...

... Abstract A brittle-like crack propagation caused failure in a rubber office-chair roller. A crack initiated from the inside of the roller and propagated in a discontinuous brittle-like fashion, as indicated from the evolution of concentric fracture striations. Compressive fatigue was a dominant...
