Background information on the ration-ale for employing linear elastic fracture mechanics to analyze fatigue crack growth rate data is given in Refs 1 5 and 2.

For steels and high-strength aluminum alloys, crack growth rates in aqueous environments tend to vary directly with the rise time. General information and requirements common to all specimen types are listed as follows: To ensure that cracks initiate in these intended regions, it is recommended that the corners of the specimens be rounded to suppress corner initiation.

Aztm size is measured, either visually or by an equivalent method, as a function of elapsed fatigue cycles and these data are subjected to numerical analysis to establish the rate of crack growth. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

For materials with high conductivity at high AC frequencies the reactive component can be a substantial fraction of the measured voltage and can lead to signi? The following test procedures should be followed to minimize or eliminate transient effects while using this K-increasing test procedure. Optical surface measurements may be used to determine ao provided crack front curvature is not signi?

Of course, with the offset compliance approach, the opening forces determined will be somewhat lower than the force at which the crack becomes fully open. For tests in air, the relative humidity as determined by Test Method E shall be reported. For tension-compression loading the length of the force train including the hydraulic actuator should be minimized, and rigid, non-rotating joints should be employed to reduce lateral motion in the force train.


Steps should be taken to reduce the variability. These values should be used for comparison to evaluate the progress of each test.

Asstm Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The effect can be significant when test specimens are removed from materials that embody residual stress fields; for example weldments or complex shape forged, extruded, cast or machined thick sections, where full stress relief is not possible, or worked parts having complex shape forged, extruded, cast or machined thick sections where full stress relief is not possible or worked parts having intentionally-induced residual stresses.

For instance, the in? Either method is suitable for the K-increasing, constant DP test.

E — 11 Meas. Some of the early specimens were prepared by growing large cracks, interrupting the test, and machining away some of the specimen material to obtain a physically short crack. Generally, tradeoffs are made between measurement system response time and voltage resolution see A6. NOTE 3—Corners of clevis may be removed if necessary to accommodate clip gage.

E — 11 A3. This type of specimen permits the acquisition of meaningful fatigue crack growth data immediately after? E — 11 and attachment of current input and voltage measurement wires can avoid many problems associated with the electric potential astn. Conversely, no discernable difference in variability level was noted between different load control methods constant amplitude astj K-control.

The minimum in-plane specimen sizes to meet this requirement are based primarily on empirical results and are speci? This type of gripping ashm necessary for tension-compression loading.

The average value of the measurements two crack lengths for the C T specimen aztm four crack lengths for the M T specimen should be used in all calculations of growth rate and K. Background information on the ration-ale for employing linear elastic fracture mechanics to analyze fatigue crack growth rate data is given in Refs 1 5 awtm 2.


Misalignment can cause non-symmetric cracking, particularly for critical applications such as near-threshold testing, which in turn may lead to invalid data see Sec.

Note, however, that a0 may underestimate the importance of smallcrack effects when crack wake closure or localized chemistry dominates the geometry effect on crack growth rates. Nonmetallic materials are recommended for the entire environmental chamber and circulation system. Considering crack initiation, and disregarding the possibility of a pre-existing crack, specimen failure should occur only if DSapplied.

Cracks may be initiated naturally or from a small notch machined on the surface. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. V Change in EPD ? This is particularly true for the smallest crack sizes. No further reproductions authorized.

Temperature and aggressive environments can signi? Control of environment temperature is also recommended. One possible problem with this type of system is that if adtm test force frequency is an integral multiple of the AC potential frequency, fracture surface sorting bridging effects may produce unwanted signal components at the AC potential frequency.

Data recorded during branching must be noted as zstm for a branching crack. Specimens taken from such products that contain residual stresses will likewise themselves contain residual stress.

The replication process has been shown to in? The relationship is valid only for the wire locations shown, which were determined by a compromise between sensitivity and reproducibility. The voltage measurement circuit and the current 6e47
