Metal Fatigue

Fatigue is the progressive, localised, and permanent structural damage that occurs when a material is subjected to cyclic or fluctuating strains at nominal stresses that have maximum values less than (often much less than) the static yield strength of the material. The resulting stress is thus below the ultimate tensile stress, and may be below the yield stress of the material, yet still cause structural failure.
