Granular Fracture

A type of irregular surface produced when metal is broken, that is characterized by a rough, grain-like appearance as differentiated from a smooth silky, fibrous, type. It can be sub-classified into transgranular and intergranular forms. This type of fracture is frequently called crystalline fracture, but the inference that the metal has crystallized is not justified.
