Atmospheric and surface effects on the fatigue properties of aluminium alloys: M38-8/71E-PDF

"Two commercial aluminum alloys were cyclically stressed in moist and dry air. The data obtained give substantial support to the hypothesis that variable cracking of the surface oxide is responsible for environmental fatigue effects. Processing in kerosene was found to have differing effects on the two alloys. A polar organic compound added to kerosene produced a significant reduction in the scatter of data from one alloy"--Abstract, p. 1.
