Abstract
This report is a survey of the cyclic deformation and fatigue behaviour of selected engineering steels and alloys. Emphasis is placed on the important roles of the cyclic slip mode and the stability of the microstructure during cyclic stressing and on the conditions of fatigue testing with respect to the failure mechanisms and fatigue life. The examples presented include low-temperature fatigue, high-temperature fatigue in the presence of dynamic strain ageing and thermomechanical fatigue.
