THE STRENGTH, ENERGY ABSORPTION AND TRANSITION TEMPERATURE OF INTERNALLY NOTCHED FLAT STEEL PLATES
This is a final report presenting the results of an extended series of tests made mainly to determine the effects of temperature upon strength, energy absorption and transition temperature of ship plate steels in tension specimens of "wide plate" type with standardized internal notches. The report is presented in three parts, the first part dealing with 12 inch wide by 3/4 inch thick specimens. Most of the steels used were the so-called pedigreed steels. The second part of the report deals with geometrically similar internally notched steel plates of variable width and thickness. The objective of these tests was to separately determine the metallurgical and geometrical effects of plate thickness. All plates were tested in "as rolled" thickness. The third part of the report concerns detailed studies to determine the energy distribution in 12 inch wide internally notched plates. Unit strain energy was computed using surface strains obtained by grid measurements.
