Abstract : The examination of fracture surfaces either by means of replicas which are subsequently studied using transmission electron microscopy or by direct observation using a scanning electron microscope has become a routine procedure in many metallurgical laboratories. It is proposed to discuss the use of fractographic techniques as an aid to microstructural analysis, as distinct from the more usual situation where prior knowledge of the microstructure is used to interpret fractographic features.
