Results of examination of structure of fracture surface on samples of MIG-welded joints of AMg6 alloy after cyclic tests with loading cycle asymmetry Rs
= 0.4 and Rs
= -1 are given. Peculiarities of morphology in different fracture regions have been revealed and mechanism of fatigue crack propagation has been established. It is noted that fracture of the welded joints at a microlevel is of a mixed and multi-site nature. High-frequency peening in a narrow AMg6 alloy weld to base metal transition zone using steel strikers provides formation of a smoother geometry of the weld to base metal transition zone and decrease in average values of the stress concentration factor.
