Abstract:

This final report summarizes research in the fatigue and fracture toughness of a large number of materials ranging from metallic and ceramic matric composites reinforced with ceramic particulates to aluminum, titanium and glass matrix composites reinforced with continuous fibers. The purpose of this report is to summarize and draw conclusions about the state of knowledge of fatigue and fracture mechanisms from the past several years of research sponsored mainly by ONR.
