    Abstract

    Recent theoretical concepts and experimental studies of the nucleation and propagation of fatigue cracking in crystalline solids are reviewed. Additional details of the role of dislocation-motion and interaction in fatigue are becoming available through studies involving direct observation of individual dislocations. Results of current investigations of the effects of dislocation—impurity-atom interaction and surface chemical environment on fatigue strength are also discussed.
