Appendix 1D Cleaning of Fracture Surfaces
Appendix 1D Cleaning of Fracture SurfacesFrom B. L. Gabriel, SEM: A User's Manual for Materials Science, American Society for Metals, Metals Park, Ohio, 1985.A clean fracture surface is a prerequisite for the definition of the mode of failure. As with any other type of specimen, fracture surfaces must be clean for successful SEM imaging. Because fracture surfaces are fragile, their cleaning must be approached with caution and common sense. The cleaning methods are classified in Table 1D.1. As a rule, the least aggressive method must be attempted before proceeding to more aggressive techniques, becau…
