Abstract:

The primary purpose of this memorandum was to make the results of Neubers stress analysis more readily usable by those engaged in evaluating the crack sensitivity of materials. While the more intense effect of a crack dies out rapidly near the crack tip, a measurable effect does persist over a great enough area that strain gages could be used to determine the extent to which Neubers analysis can be applied to granular materials like metals and alloys. The results indicate that, except in the immediate vicinity of the crack tip, the stress field is quite insensitive to crack geometry. Author
