2.1 Introduction

The overlap between mechanical properties and interfacial analysis has occurred almost exclusively in situations where the failure mode of a component in service is intergranular. In a small number of cases, the defect structure of the grain boundary alone is sufficient to cause the failure to be intergranular. In the great majority of cases, this type of failure occurs because the composition of the grain boundaries has become very different ...
