NOTCH-TOUGHNESS PROPERTIES OF SHIP-PLATE STEEL AS EVALUATED BY THE VAN DER VEEN NOTCHED SLOW-BEND TEST

On the basis of the limited amount of work reported here, the van der Veen notched slow-bend test appears to provide an estimate of the fracture transition temperature similar to that obtained in the Navy tear test. A ductility transition temperature can also be evaluated by the van der Veen test, but during the present study it appeared that more tests should have been conducted at lower temperatures in order to permit more suitable selections of the ductility transition temperature. Increased use of the van der Veen test should establish its correlation with the other tests that have been used to evaluate the notch-sensitivity characteristics of ship-plate steels. In this connection, the Material Laboratory is currently applying the van der Veen test to samples of ABS ship plate under investigation at the National Bureau of Standards as part of Ship Structure Committee Project SR-139, "Joint SSC-AISI Study."
