Abstract:

The Ship Structures Committee has sponsored the development of a data bank covering the toughness of steels for marine applications. Effort focused on the identification and procurement of sources of data containing quantitative toughness data, and the development from those data of a well-documented computerized data bank available to a wide range of engineers and material scientists. Included were raw data from material suppliers and data from papers and technical reports published by a variety of organizations. The principal focus was on Tensile, Charpy V notched bar impact values, fracture toughness JIc, NDTT, and DT energies other toughness parameters were included if available for the same lots of material. The materials include steels identified by the Project Technical Committee representing the sponsoring agencies. About 1000 records representing approximately 10,000 tests of eleven steels are included in this prototype version of the data bank. Standard procedures now exist for efficient addition of data for other alloys and properties.
