LOW-STRESS BRITTLE FRACTURE IN MILD STEEL

The report begins with a delineation of the problem followed by a description of the tests and measurements derived to determine the strain distribution during loading in a precracked specimen. All tests were done at room temperature above the temperature of initiation of a brittle crack. The behavior of cracked plates, embrittled steel and welded wide plate is discussed.
