CAUSES OF CLEAVAGE FRACTURE IN SHIP PLATE: FLAT PLATE TESTS

The report consists entirely of 37 diagrams of plate elongation measured over various stress levels, 30 photographs of fracture specimens with hardness contours and an appendix. The appendix consists of 67 tables showing percent elongation for each of the wide notched flat plates tested. Readings reproducable to plus or minus .002 inches were taken by means of a special gage prior to loading and after fracture.
