Metal fatigue failure is when the surface of a metal experiences cyclic loading and begins to crack or fracture causing the part to weaken Laser peening specializes in achieving beneficial compressive residual stresses at a depth that is unmatched by conventional metal surface treatments...

Griffith Theory of Brittle Fracture Metallurgy

Thus crack- propagation stage is ordinarily more difficult than crack initiation in metals Cleavage cracks are more difficult to propagate through a polycrystalline material than through a single crystal as it is difficult for the crack to pass through a large angle grain boundary Actually the grain size limits the initial size to which a...

Welding Defect Crack

How can electric fields be used to detect cracks in metals

Cracks and other flaws can be found in metal parts by scanning the surface of the part with a small electromagnetic coil which induces a current flow in the metal part as if the coil and the part were two coils coupled together in a transformer the presence of a flaw like a crack in the part perturbs the flow of induced current and in turn upsets the current flow in the coil which can be...
