Abstract

The aim of this work was to study fractographically the fatigue crack initiation and early crack growth mechanism for pure titanium metal implanted with nitrogen ions while varying the notch radii. A maximum surface roughness, Rmax and the factual dimension, D , were calculated from the fatigue fracture surface and were rela
