Abstract:

The principal objectives are a to characterize the dynamic fracture toughness of three heats of nuclear pressure vessel steel, namely, 6-in. A302-B plate, 8-in. A533-B Class 1 plate, and 9-in. A508 Class 2 forging and b to develop techniques for the interpretation and analysis of notched, three-point bend specimens tested under impact loading.
