FRACTURE TOUGHNESS. AN ENGINEERING DESIGN PARAMETER

On the basis of information presented it is concluded that the coupling between engineering fracture tests (Nil-Ductility-Transition and Dynamic Tear tests) for measurement of fracture resistance and linear-elastic fracture mechanics theory has been achieved. Interpretive diagram systems were developed which couple the fracture toughness values from engineering fracture tests to the analytical capability of fracture mechanics. The broad-scope capability of the DT test for measuring fracture toughness is pointed out.
