Fracture mechanics studies on glass by indentation techniques have become predominant in recent times. Several techniques have been adopted to initiate crack in the material followed by repeated indentation at the same spot for crack growth and fatigue studies. However glass subjected to to repeated indentation at a point prior to crack initiation at a subcritical loads phenomenological to metal fatigue was not systematically investigated. Experiment was conducted to initiate cracks on normal sodalime glass by repeated indentation at a single point with different subcritical (0.1 N, 0.15 N, 0.25 N, 0.50 N, 1.0 N) loads. Experiment was discontinued the moment crack was observed to occur. The length of diagonals were found to increase with each indentation leading to crack initiation. This observation was analysed considering the plastic component and the residual force developed during each indentation cycle and a model has been developed to correlate the contribution of cumulative residual stress for crack initiation.
