THE MECHANISM OF BRITTLE FRACTURE

This report reviews the general form of stress-temperature relationship for the crack arrest test and the effect of grain size on grain controlled mild steel, ordinary mild steel and the effect on upper arrest and critical stress. Stress ahead of a crack front for various nominal transverse stress conditions is discussed as well as the possible relations among yield strength, size of grain, temperature and arrest temperature.
