The tensile fracture was originated from the strain concentration in equiaxed grain region adjacent to the fusion center, where a lower micro-hardness occurred when compared to the columnar grain region in the fusion zone. A higher stress level was more potential to fabricate a fatal fatigue crack initiating from the intrinsic metallic deficiencies. At a lower stress of 180 MPa, fatigue crack appeared to initiate from the intergranular welding pores other than the intrinsic metallic deficiencies. Furthermore, intergranular welding pores induced fatal crack initiation became the major fatigue crack initiation mechanisms when the fatigue stress amplitude down to 140 MPa.
