Most often this is accomplished by calculating an elastic constraint modulus, E8, and using this in the compliance equation to adjust all crack size calculations.

However, for tests within the scope of this appendix, remote measurements are recommended because they are experimentally simpler and are likely to be more repeatable than near-tip measurements. This relationship is valid only in cases where the current density is uniform at some cross section of the specimen remote from the crack plane and the voltage is measured on the where: These form a permanent record of the surface topography, including the crack mouth, and are subsequently viewed in an optical or with appropriate replica processing asm electron microscope to measure surface crack length.

Additionally images can be collected at intervals during a load cycle to assess the crack opening behavior using digital image correlation DIC techniques.

E — 11 density requirement be demonstrated. For example, crack-clamping resulting from far-field 3D residual stresses may lead to partly compressive stress cycles, and exacerbate the crack closure effect, even when the specimen nominal applied stress range is wholly tensile. Such is the case for threshold testing where it is required that at least?

The concept of similitude is assumed, which astj that cracks qstm differing lengths subjected to the same nominal DK will advance by equal increments of crack extension per cycle.

In this event, the force range shall be stepped-down to meet the above requirement. Typical electrical potential wire placement locations are similar to the C T specimen, refer to Fig.


If a circulation system is employed, the environmental chamber should be of sufficient size, and inlet and outlet locations should be chosen, to ensure a?

For the M T specimen, the recommended measurement is displacement across the crack on the longitudinal centerline see Fig. For many materials, a0 appears to give a rough approximation of the crack size below which microstructural small-crack effects become potentially signi? E67 Change in EPD ? Scatter—Because of the low level signals which must be measured with either the DC or AC current methods, a number of procedures should be followed to improve voltage measurement precision. A resistance ratio test frame resistance divided by the specimen resistance of or greater is sufficient for most practical applications.

The change in voltage can be related to crack size through analytical or experimental calibration relationships.

Aggressive test environments may require special lead wire materials or coatings, or both, to avoid loss of electrical continuity caused by corrosive attack. While extraction of the specimen and introduction of the crack starting slot in itself partially relieves and redistributes the pattern of residual stress, the remaining magnitude can still cause significant error in the ensuing test result.

When written in this form, the solutions can be made independent of specimen thickness, in-plane specimen size, applied current, and material. This data suggests that there is little statistical axtm in variability between this and the previous 19 interlaboratory test program.

The environmental chamber should be designed so as to prevent galvanic contact between dissimilar test specimen and grip assembly components. The reference location may be either on the test specimen or on an alternate specimen in the same environment, and powered by the same electrical current source as the test specimen. In addition for the M T specimen, measurements referenced from the specimen centerline to the two cracks for each crack use the average of measurements on front and back surfaces shall not differ by more than 0.

These thermoelectric voltages can axtm a substantial fraction of the total measured voltage. Therefore, it is recommended that the quality of the data be checked for each test specimen. Nominal values for all of the above environmental variables, as well as maximum deviations throughout the duration of testing, shall be reported. Precracking growth rates less than 10? 6e47 may be signi?

If crack sizes measured on front and back surfaces differ by more than 0. Use of reference voltage measurements can signi? Tensile forces are considered positive and compressive forces negative.

In this appendix, the physical surface-crack depth is represented as a. Variability can usually be reduced by electrically shielding the transducer wires and by appropriate electronic?

E — 11 and analytical techniques and identi? Additional terms more speci? Generally, tradeoffs are made between measurement system response time and voltage resolution see A6. 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.

PM, DC-EPD techniques require some specialized but relatively inexpensive equipment and may be automated to reduce labor and clock time. Steady-state nearthreshold data, when applied to service loading histories, may result in non-conservative lifetime estimates, particularly for small cracks However, it becomes increasingly difficult to use as growth rates decrease below 10?

For the K-decreasing tests where force is shed in decremental steps, as in Fig. e6477

Thickness effects can also interact with other variables such as environment and heat treatment. In order to eliminate mechanical notch effects, the size of the precrack region, as measured from the notch root, should be at least two times the notch tip radius. Thus, the utility of DKth as a material property appears to be limited to cracks of length greater than that given by the intersection of the two lines a0.
