CORRELATION OF LABORATORY TESTS WITH FULL SCALE SHIP PLATE FRACTURE TESTS: SLOW NOTCH BEND TEST

The present progress report is essentially a continuation of that released March 19, 1947. The objective and outline of work were indicated in that place; the former consisting in the development of a test capable of conduction in the laboratory and which would correlate closely with the large plate test results which were obtained at the University of California and at the University of Illinois. The latter consisting in part in the examination of the Charpy test in the prescribed manner to ascertain if in this test the desired correlation could be obtained. Close correlation was not obtained in this test. In order to obtain the desired correlation, a slow-bend notched-bar test was developed and it is with the results of slow bend testing that this report is concerned.
