Abstract:

The fracture toughness tests of all materials have been completed, and test results are reported. Axial-stress fatigue curves have been prepared for the 12 and 1-38-in. X7080-T7E41 plate, the 12-in. 7178-T651 plate, and the 1116x16-in. 7075-T6510, 7075-T73510, X7080-T7E42 and 7178-T6510 extruded panels. The results of some stress-corrosion tests of the plates and extruded shapes are reported. The X7080-T7-type samples exhibit a higher resistance to stress-corrosion cracking than the 7178-T6-type samples. Tests to evaluate the stress-corrosion resistance of the extruded bar samples by a fracture mechanics approach have begun. Fatigue crack propagation curves have been prepared for the four samples of 7178 plate and extruded shapes. Author
