CORRELATION OF LABORATORY TESTS WITH FULL SCALE SHIP PLATE FRACTURE TESTS
The report summarizes the work done on a series of edge-notched tensile bars prepared from the project steels. Evidence is presented to show that for the test specimen used, reasonable agreement exists between the transition temperatures obtained on the basis of per cent fibrous fracture and the transition temperatures for the large plate tension tests. It is further shown that there is lack of agreement between transition temperatures based on fracture appearance and transition temperatures based on energy absorption for this test. Lateral contraction measurements and total elongation measurements are given and show general conformity with energy absorption measurements, although much scatter of the data precludes a strict comparison.
