... processes (ductile, brittle, fatigue, and creep) are described briefly, principally in terms of fracture appearances. A description of the surface, structure, and behavior of each fracture process is also included. The article provides a framework from which a prospective analyst can begin to study...

... and occurring after only tens or hundreds of cycles, the microscale fracture surface appearance or morphology may be similar to monotonic ductile overload failures (i.e., microvoid coalescence or dimpled rupture). In general, the discussion of fatigue fracture appearance in this article does not apply to very...
