The multilevel approach of physical mesomechanics was used to study the fundamental role of curvature of the crystal structure in nonlinear behavior and fracture under cyclic loading of titanium BT1-0, which has polymorphic transformation hcp-bcc. Experimental confirmation of the mechanism of fatigue cracking at fracture of a solid as structural-phase decomposition of the crystal structure in local curvature zones of macroscale level where a non-equilibrium thermodynamic Gibbs potential is higher than zero, was obtained.
