This article is an atlas of fractographs that helps in understanding the causes and mechanisms of fracture of medium-carbon steels and in identifying and interpreting the morphology of fracture surfaces. The fractographs illustrate the torsional-fatigue fracture, cup and cone tensile fracture, brittle fracture, and in-service rotary bending fatigue fracture of fractured roof-truss angles, pressure-vessel shells, automotive axle shafts, broken keyed spindles, crane gears, blooming-mill spindles, automotive bolts, and crane wheels of these steels.
