A metallurgical investigation was made of the cause of a decrease in fatigue life of a new contract of purchase cable. Using fractography, supported by scanning electron microscopy, metallography and tensile testing, it was possible to explain how very subtle differences in the wire quality used to make the cable had led to the decrease in fatigue life.
