    Microscopic plastic zone parameters at the tips of fatigue cracks in low carbon steel, as derived by the X-ray microbeam technique, have been correlated with measurement of some of the same parameters by the electron channeling contrast technique. Good correlation has been obtained for the parameters common to both techniques. The results for low carbon steel are found to correlate well with fatigue crack plasticity in other metals.
