Laws governing the buildup of fatigue fracture under cyclic loading of aluminum alloy polycrystals under conditions of multicycle fatigue have been studied by analyzing the space-time dynamics of mesoscopic structures. It has been shown that under the periodic action of an external mechanical field, deformation domains form in the material at the mesoscopic level. The evolution of these dynamic mesoscopic domain substructures determines the kinetics of the fatigue fracture of the polycrystals.
