Abstract:

The results obtained from wide-plate tension tests undertaken for the purpose of simulating the full-scale performance of steel used in ships hulls are presented. Information as to initiation and propagation of fast fracture in wide steel plates was first obtained through a series of nineteen tests performed on a newly developed wide-plate testing machine. Test temperatures ranged from -1001F to a room temperature ambient of 751F. A fatigue crack or a brittle bead was used as a crack initiator and large residual stresses were introduced. Author
