SPECIFICATION OF PERMISSIBLE DEFECT SIZES IN WELDED METAL STRUCTURES

The eventual goal of much fracture research is to facilitate the economic design and construction of fracture-proof structures, yet the frequent criticism of practicing engineers is that this issue is evaded most by those whose knowledge of fracture mechanics is such that they would also be most competent to help. The link is most likely to be provided through specifications of permissible defect sizes, prepared in combination by fabricators, inspectors and researchers. The paper discusses how such specifications might strive for rigor, in combination with flexibility and practical simplicity of application, through a two-class system distinguishing the plane stress and plane strain modes of operation.
