Selected specimens of ATJ-S graphite were nondestructively evaluated and tensile tested in gas-bearing test facilities. The nondestructive test methods used on billets, specimen blanks, and finished specimens were visual inspection, alcohol wipe, radiography, and radiographic enhancement techniques. Correlations were made between nondestructive test indications and fracture location and strength. Low density areas were found to be the predominant weakening defect in this graphite. Fractographic examination of the fractured specimens revealed flaws which could be correlated with those flaws detected nondestructively and predicted from Griffiths theory. Author
