This article describes the effects of cyclic fatigue properties on aluminum alloys. It provides a discussion on strain-control fatigue and the effects of two microstructural features on the strain life of aluminum alloys: shearable precipitates and precipitate-free zones. The article discusses various models of fatigue crack growth (FCG) and the effects of alloy microstructure and composition on FCG.
