The fatigue failure kinetics for welded joints of low-alloyed steel is investigated by analyzing the displacement vector field under high-cyclic loading. Failure accumulation in the heat-affected zone at the mesoscale is found to possess a multi-stage character that is associated with the formation and evolution of mesostructure deformation and fragmentation. Identified are the pertinent parameters that described the mechanical state of welded joints under load. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
