    Abstract

    The behaviour of short fatigue cracks is shown to be relevant only to a limited number of engineering situations. Within these situations, further restrictions on the extent to which metallurgical control can be exerted to improve fatigue crack growth behaviour are identified. The degree of control remaining is discussed in terms of two separate regimes which are described as intrinsic and extrinsic crack growth resistance. These separate effects are highlighted by comparisons both within and between a wide range of alloy systems. The implications of such an analysis are discussed in terms of aerospace applications.
