In the previous work, we found that the tensile stress occurring around the equator of the ball caused fatigue of the ball itself. Four groups of pre-cracks, whose surface lengths were 140μm, 220μm, 550μm and 700μm, were initiated on ball surfaces and the strength of these pre-cracked balls was measured. The static strengths and fatigue limits of all pre-cracked balls decreased with crack sizes. We concluded that the fatigue caused by a pre-crack located on the equator of the ball surface was important for understanding fatigue of silicon nitride balls. In the present work, carrying out fatigue tests of pre-cracked balls with 220μm cracks at three frequencies (5Hz, 20Hz and 35Hz) we found that the frequency had effect on speeds of the crack growths.
