CLEAVAGE FRACTURE OF SHIP PLATES AS INFLUENCED BY SIZE EFFECT

The report contains a description of tests made to determine why ship plates crack in service. The tests were based upon the hypothesis that the cracks begin at points where there are severe geometrical stress-raisers and that the tendency for the plates to crack increased, for specified geometrical characteristics, with an increase in the notch-sensitivity of the steel.
