This report describes a study of fatigue closure of part through cracks in notched 5mm thick Al-Cu alloy sheet specimens. The study used a specially designed electron fractography technique which enables accurate assessment of closure, its development with crack extension as well as its variation across the crack front. The effect of prior overloads on notch root crack closure was also investigated.
