FRACTURE APPEARANCE OF IMPACT SPECIMENS TAKEN FROM FRACTURED SHIP PLATES

Several thousand broken V-notch Charpy specimens from service failures were studied to determine the relation between fracture appearance and impact energy of steel from fractured ships. It was found that the 50% fibrous fracture criterion was as effective as the Charpy V-notch 15 ft-lb criterion as a means of discriminating between plate that contained the source or the terminus of the fracture, or if the plate permitted a fracture to run through it.
