... such as electrolytic and hand polishing and the vibration method resulted in poor edge and crack edge definition due to material thickness. Etching experiments involved a grain surface attack and hence produced a rather strong surface relief from which the grain boundary cracks could again not clearly...

.... Failure initiated from the spring inside coil surface. Examination of the fracture surface using scanning electron microscopy showed no evidence of fatigue. Final fracture occurred in torsion. X-ray diffraction analysis revealed high inner-diameter residual stresses, indicating inadequate stress relief...

.... A burned layer on the surface of the latch indicated that the cracks had been caused by improper grinding after hardening. To strengthen the stop-arm latch tip, the size of the backing web that reinforced the tip was increased (Improved design. Detail A, Fig. 1a ). Also, the radius at the relief step...

Beach marks that emanated from the thread-root locations on opposite sides of the fracture surface identified these locations to be the origins of the fracture. A medium-coarse slightly acicular structure was revealed by metallographic...
