... consumption and exhaust emissions has led to a reduction in the amount of lubricant present in the air stream in automotive engines. This, combined with the effort to lengthen service intervals and increase engine performance, has led to an increase in the wear of inlet valves and seat inserts. Engines...

... and safety, reliability, and quality can be greatly reduced. Excessive wear from inlet and exhaust valves impacting their seating faces in automotive engines can lead to loss of cylinder pressure and ultimately engine failure. Failure of tools used for drilling rock and other media raises cost concerns...

.... Life prediction in the TMF regime is particularly important in high-temperature turbines (jet engines and land-based turbines), the power-generation industry (both conventional and nuclear), and in the automotive industry, to name a few. Significant advances can be made by combining mechanistic studies...

.... Microscopically, the fracture mode for SCC is usually different from the fracture mode for plane-strain fractures in the same alloy. There appears to be a threshold stress below which SCC does not occur, at least in some systems. The passage of time has not negated these observations, and they are still...

Magnitude and direction of loading, interaction with other components, damage sequencing in systems, and other valuable information may be reliant upon the investigation and reconstruction of fracture patterns. In this way, inspection and analysis of fracture surfaces may be critical...
