Metal fatigue


Metal fatigue phenomena is observed on many end-user dynamic loading applications, and is the origin of cracks and failure implying high maintenance costs and lower equipment uptime. Moreover, the general trend of the industry to reduce the weight of the components for cost savings, or for a given component to enlarge its load for higher performances, enhance the fatigue problems. Nethertheless reliability remains a primary concern.

Consequently, industrial companies may consider efficient solutions to prevent component from failure by using fatigue-life enhancement processes on new manufactured parts as well as during preventive maintenance.
