The mechanism of the shear mode of ductile fracture has been investigated in sheet tensile specimens of an α brass containing few inclusions. The techniques of optical metallography, scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy of both thin foils and replicas were all used in order to obtain as complete a picture of the fracture mechanism as possible. It was found that a zone of shear deformation, made up of many intense shear bands, developed across the specimen neck and fr...
