MEASURING KR-CURVES FOR THIN SHEETS

THREE EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES FOR DEVELOPING THE CRACK RESISTANCE CURVE AND PLANE STRESS FRACTURE TOUGHNESS USING CENTER CRACKED PANELS ARE REVIEWED. ONE TECHNIQUE INVOLVING A PLASTICITY CHARACTERIZATION BASED ON THE CRACK OPENING STRETCH IS DISCUSSED IN DETAIL. EXPERIMENTAL DATA FOR A VARIETY OF MATERIALS AND THICKNESSES ARE PRESENTED WHICH SHOW THE EQUIVALENCE OF THE VARIOUS METHODS FOR DETERMING THE CRACK RESISTANCE CURVE.
