A specific stress sequence causes both WECs and unpredictable failures concurrently.

WECs are a symptom of this stress history and not a direct cause of failure.

The relevant stress history consists of early short-lived high stress, followed by prolonged moderate stress.

Damage potential of this stress history is not accounted for by Palmgren-Miner rule, hence the `upredictable` failure lifetimes.

No specific oil chemistry, SRR or frictional energy are required to form WECs.
