K Ic may d399-90 be expected to rise with increasing ligament size. The present astk method does not apply to such materials and the user is referred to Test Method E and E Likewise this test method does e3399-90 apply to high toughness or high tearing-resistance materials whose failure is accompanied by appreciable amounts of plasticity.

Guidance on testing elastic-plastic materials is given in Test Method E Background information concerning the basis for development of this test method in terms of linear elastic fracture mechanics may be found in Refs 1 astmm 2. Crack extension under cyclic or sustained forces as by stress corrosion cracking or creep crack growth can be influenced by e399-90 and environment.


Therefore, when K Ic is applied to the design of service components, differences between laboratory test and field conditions shall be considered.

Therefore, compliance with the specified validity criteria of this test method is essential. The effect can be especially significant for specimens removed from as-heat treated or otherwise non-stress relieved stock, from weldments, from complex wrought r399-90, or from parts with intentionally induced residual stresses.

Indications of residual stress include distortion during specimen machining, results that are specimen configuration dependent, and irregular fatigue precrack growth either excessive crack front curvature or out-of-plane growth. Guide B provides supplementary guidelines for plane strain fracture toughness testing of aluminum alloy products for which complete stress relief is not practicable.

The specification of K Ic values in relation to a particular application should signify that a fracture control study has been conducted for the component in relation to the expected loading and environment, and in relation to the sensitivity and reliability of the crack detection procedures that are to be applied prior to service and subsequently during the anticipated life.
