Abstract:

The role of linear fracture mechanics in providing a quantitative framework for corrosion fatigue research and application is reviewed. The importance of integrating chemistry, mechanics and materials science in the development of quantitative mechanistic understanding of corrosion fatigue is emphasized, and is illustrated by results of studies of environmentally assisted fatigue crack growth in gaseous and aqueous environments.
