A failed engine mount frame of an aircraft was sent to the laboratory for investigation. The engine mount was found to have failed by fatigue. The fatigue crack had initiated at the weld toe in the parent material and propagated progressively before culminating in overload failure. Investigation revealed that abnormal microstructure in the heat affected zone was responsible for fatigue crack initiation and failure of the engine mount frame.
