The Microstructural Aspects of Tensile Fracture

  • C. J. McMahonJr.
Conference paper
Part of the Fundamental Phenomena in the Materials Sciences book series (FPMS, volume 4)

Abstract

The proposed and observed mechanisms of initiation of brittle fracture will be reviewed. These are slip band and twin blockage, precipitate particle and particle interface fracture, pre-existing cracks, and embrittled grain interfaces. Conditions under which each mechanism prevails will be outlined. The conditions for brittle fracture, the mechanisms of ductile fracture, and the physical significance of the ductility transition will also be discussed.
