Abstract:

A brief review of the work on metal fatigue and metal failure carried out over the past 15 years is presented. In particular, the results on metal failure obtained by employing an experimental method are discussed the method used consisted of measuring the magnitude of bending in rotating cantilever specimens as a function of a continuously increasing applied cyclic load. Graphs showing typical experimental results are presented. Author
