Crankshaft Failure Mode Analysis
I have a broken crankshaft where I am trying to determine the cause of failure.
here are some pics of the cracked surface.
what is known:
1) the crank shaft was under very light load at time of failure
What do you guys think?

Fatigue. Crack propogation originating from the oil drilling shown.
