Cast Aluminum Alloys: Atlas of Fractographs
This article is an atlas of fractographs that helps in understanding the causes and mechanisms of fracture of cast aluminum alloys and in identifying and interpreting the morphology of fracture surfaces. The fractographs illustrate the brittle fracture, microvoid coalescence, fatigue striations, and microstructure of these alloys. The components considered include fractured sand-cast carrier trays, broken extension-housing yokes, helicopter tail-rotor drive assemblies, fractured bell-crank fittings, chain-hoist hooks, and automotive connecting rods.
