EVALUATION OF IMPROVED MATERIALS AND METHODS OF FABRICATION FOR WELDED STEEL SHIPS
This report covers tests made on the project steels using various modifications of the test specimens employed in the work described by the first progress report and with notched tension specimens. It was the object of these modifications to obtain the same transition temperatures for the project steels that were obtained from the full-scale hatch-corner test specimens studied at the University of California. Other tests of all-weld-metal specimens and specimens welded with E6020 electrodes are included. A few preliminary observations on the initiation of fracture in the test specimens used are described.
