  • Abstract Published fatigue crack closure mechanisms are reviewed in the context of the following five ideas that have been developed over the past twenty years to explain the closure effects on near-threshold crack growth behaviour: (1) oxide, (2) asperity, (3) plasticity, (4) phase transformation and (5) viscous fluids. The first three have been considered as more important than the last two. Our analysis indicates that (a) there can be no contribution from plasticity to crack closure, (b) the… CONTINUE READING
