A wedge loaded testing methodology to determine the fracture energy and strength of (semi-) brittle (metallo-)ceramics is presented. The methodology combines a tailored specimen geometry and a comprehensive finite element analysis based on cohesive zone modelling. The use of a simulation-based approach to extract both fracture strength and...

Due to pressure from the photovoltaic industry to decrease the cost of solar cell production, there is a tendency to reduce the thickness of silicon wafers. Unfortunately, wafers contain defects created by the various processing steps involved in solar cell production, which significantly reduce the strength of the wafers and cells. Therefore, a...

The effect of cooling rate on some mechanical properties of APC-2/AS4 composite was investigated over the range between 1 and 70° C/min. Preconsolidated unidirectional laminates were reprocessed in a hot platen press at controlled cooling rates. Double Cantilever Beam specimens and End Notch Flexure specimens were used to determine the mode I...

The effects of strain rate and temperature on the fracture behaviour of three structural adhesives (Redux 775, Metlbond 328 and EC 2216) were investigated using Double Cantilever Beam specimens. The test results were presented as critical elastic energy release rate data (G) to investigate whether this parameter could be used to characterize me...

This report presents results of residual strength calculations, carried out on cracked panel configurations of various designs and provided with bonded stiffeners. The calculations were carried out using the computer program BOND. The results of these calculations are compared with results of residual strength tests, performed on panels of...

A comparative experimental investigation was done on the advanced plate alloys 7010-T651 from ALCAN and 7150-T6E189 from ALCOA. The mechanical properties, fracture toughness and corrosion properties were determined. The most notable finding was the excellent fracture toughness of alloy 7150-T6E189 combined with a high tensile strength. The...

The engineering properties of PM alloy X7091-T7E69 forgings were compared with those of forgings of the IM alloys 7075-T73, 7175-T736, 7050-T736 and 7010-T736. The properties considered were: strength, fracture toughness, fatigue crack propagation under constant amplitude and flight simulation loading, stress corrosion crack initiation and...

The Al-Zn-Mg-Cu alloy 7050 produced by Alcoa is a typical plate and forging alloy because of its low quench sensitivity. In order to compare this alloy with the earlier tested plate alloy 7010 an experimental programme was performed involving tensile, fracture toughness, and fatigue testing. In addition stress corrosion crack initiation and...

An experimental investigation.was performed on 80 mm thick plate material of 7OIO-T7651 and 7OIO-T73651 developed by Alcan Industries Ltd in U.K. The testing programme involved: tensile tests, fracture toughness, stress corrosion and fatigue tests. For comparison a similar investigation vas carried out on 7075-T7351 Alcoa plate material.

Fracture toughness measurements were carried out to test the ageing behaviour of three adhesives in different environments. It was possible to compare and evaluate adhesives and surface pretreatments. It is doubtful whether the derived R-curves could be used for residual strength calculations in certain environments. Phosphoric acid anodizing...

Fracture toughness tests on two high strength titanium alloys, IMI 550 and 551, showed that the higher strength alloy, IMI 551, had a much lower toughness. The alloys were very similar in microstructure and fracture mechanisms. A number of model formulations for predicting fracture toughness were compared with the experimental results. This...

Fatigue tests under flight-simulation loading have been performed on unnotched Alclad 2024-T3, anodised 2.0 mm thick sheet specimens, manufactured according to several machine-shop processes applied in the air craft industry. From the results it appears that milling is preferable to stamping. Rounding off the edges is also advantageous. The...

Fatigue tests on unidirectional Ca/ep composite material have been performed to investigate whether previous fatigue loading did influence the residual static strength. Residual strength tests were carried out on (0, ± 45)2s and (± 45)2s laminates, while for the (O, ± 45)2s laminate the influence of previous tensile fatigue loading on the...

The effects of flat to slant fracture transitions on flight simulation fatigue crack propagation in specimens of 7O5O aluminium alloy forgings are discussed. For specimens containing flat, shearlipped, or full slant fractures at similar crack lengths the crack resistance (R curve) approach appears to provide an explanation for differences in the...

Residual strength tests have heen performed, on 300 mm wide centrecracked panels of various thicknesses, at room temperature and at -50 C. During the tests, stable crack growth was filmed and recorded with the electric potential method. Fracture toughness was determined using the method of Feddersen.
