THE EFFECT OF THE STATE OF STRESS ON THE STRAIN AT FRACTURE
Tension tests on solid cylindrical specimens and internal pressure tests on one type of tubular specimen showed that a superimposed hydrostatic pressure increased the ductility. Internal pressure tests on a similar tubular specimen that was supported in a different manner showed that the hydrostatic pressure had almost no effect on the ductility.
