Abstract

Fatigue of metals is an extremely important scientific and technical problem that spans multiple length and time scales and has significant repercussions in a wide variety of industrial and military applications. In this chapter, a brief historical perspective on this phenomenon is provided, followed by basic definitions of key variables and testing procedures. Then, the three fundamental aspects of metal fatigue are reviewed, namely cyclic deformation, crack nucleation and crack propagation, with emphasis on experiments and modeling of pure cubic and hexagonal metals and their alloys for low, high and very high cycle fatigue regimes.
