A fatigue fracture feature often observed in electron micrographs that indicates the position of the crack front after each succeeding cycle of stress. The distance between striations indicates the advance of the crack front across that crystal during one stress cycle, and a line normal to the striation
indicates the direction of local crack propagation. Not to be confused with beach marks, which are much larger (macroscopic and form differently.
