Fatigue of Small-Scale Metal Materials: From Micro- to Nano-Scale
This work considers currently-developed fatigue testing techniques and evaluation methods for the small-scale metal materials. Then, a number of studies on fatigue damage behavior and fatigue properties are presented and highlighted as a function of the length scales. The relationship between length-scale-dependent microstructure evolution and fatigue behavior is addressed to understand fatigue damage mechanisms at small scales. Finally, the perspectives of studies on fatigue of the small-scale metal materials are proposed.
