ELECTRON MICROSCOPE TECHNIQUES FOR STUDY OF FRACTURED SURFACES OF SHIP PLATE STEELS

This project was directed toward developing and evaluating the use of replica techniques in the electron microscope study of fractured surfaces of ship plate steels. Its ultimate aim was to further the understanding of the micro-mechanism of fracture. Using 3/4-in. Navy tear test specimens, an iron single crystal specimen formed by the carbonyl process and a specimen of actual ship plate failure taken from a C-2 cargo ship, a satisfactory electron microscope replica technique for use directly on fractured metal surfaces has been demonstrated. This technique was found to be reproducible and capable of manifesting fine and coarse structures. It produces electron micrographs which give structures that can be measured, defined and classified.
