The most common process is one of pore (incipient crack) formation at or in a particle, followed by either void growth and linkage or by localized shear band slip deformation in the intervoid ligaments. The mechanisms of void...

... loading is known as a fatigue fracture. A fatigue fracture generally occurs in three stages: it initiates during Stage I, propagates for most of its length during Stage II, and proceeds to catastrophic fracture during Stage III. Fatigue crack initiation and growth during Stage I occurs principally by...
