Article Preview

A comparison between crack growth rate (da/dN) vs. effective stress intensity range factor (ΔKeff) curve behavior and microscopic and macroscopic fracture surface of commercial Ti-6Al-4V alloy are presented. Three different regimes are correlated with characteristics measured on the fracture surfaces. Three regions can be observed in which part I is rough and darker than others parts known as pre-transition, part II is smooth and light known as transition region and part III is a little darker than part II known as post-transition region. In the present investigation the correlation of fatigue crack growth rate for Ti-6Al-4V and microstructure of fracture surface has been presented.
