Abstract:

Analysis is presented of the results of an extensive mechanical and fracture test program. Ninety-six hollow cylinder forgings of A723 steel with five different manufacturing processes were tested at two locations with different outer diameters. Yield strength, plane-strain fracture toughness, Charpy impact energy, and tensile reduction-in-area were measured and analyzed for statistical variation and difference of mean value. Linear regression was used to fit lines to the data and to determine correlation coefficients. Conclusions were drawn as to the suitability of Charpy energy and reduction-in-area as predictors of plane-strain fracture toughness. Author
