This article is an atlas of fractographs that helps in understanding the causes and mechanisms of fracture of nickel alloys and in identifying and interpreting the morphology of fracture surfaces. The fractographs illustrate the fatigue crack, transgranular cleavage, intergranular fracture, grain boundaries, notch and fatigue precrack, dimpled rupture, and fatigue striations of these alloys.
