APPLICATION OF FRACTURE MECHANICS TO THE BRITTLE FRACTURE OF STRUCTURAL STEELS

Calculation of defect size based on current theory, from measurements of K1c or COD in laboratory tests and demonstration of the influence of various design factors, stress concentration and residual stress effects on the defect tolerance calculated are given in graphical and equation form.
