The area enclosed within hysteresis loops was again calculated for specimen

C5x8.5S5 and C5x8.5P5OL as the number of load cycles increased, to monitor the

pseudo energy loss per cycle. The pseudo energy loss per crack at unit width for

specimen C5x8.5P5OL and C5x8.5S5 was plotted as a function of load cycle count in

Figure 2.41. In addition to the same general trend of energy loss/cycle, the pseudo

energy loss per crack, at unit width, for specimen C5x8.5S5 is also smaller than that of

C5x8.5P5 and C5x8.5H5.

Thus far, the discussions have been limited to an individual crack in a specimen.

Due to the random nature of fatigue and cracking, sometimes, there are cracks in close

proximity to each other.
