... to the macroscopic level. The cup-and-cone fracture shown at left in Fig. 1 occurred as a result of appreciable plastic deformation, and, thus, is a ductile fracture. On the other hand, the fracture shown at right in Fig. 1 is a brittle fracture. The sequence of events that culminates in a cup-and-cone...

On the other hand, lack of conformance to a particular requirement in no way automatically implies a cause of failure. Also...
