Oil and Gas Field Glossary
The process of progressive localized permanent structural change occurring in a material subjected to conditions which produce fluctuating stresses that may culminate in cracks or complete failure after a sufficient number of fluctuations. Fatigue is often identified within the following classes: High Cycle Fatigue - Loading is primarily elastic and material failure occurs in excess of 10,000 stress cycles. Low Cycle Fatigue - Loading is mostly elastic and material failure occurs in 1,000 to 10,000 stress cycles. Fatigue Ultra-Low Cycle Fatigue - Loading is plastic and material failure typically occurs in less than 1,000 stress cycles.
Dictionary of Automotive Terms
A condition of a material, especially a metal, causing loss of elasticity and tendency to fracture after long or repeated stress, even though the stress may be less than that which would cause failure under static conditions. See metal fatigue .
Technical English by wpv
The phenomenon leading to fracture under repeated or fluctuating stresses having maximum value less than the ultimate strength of the material.
