The use of orientation imaging microscopy before or after initiation of the crack may avoid these problems and still facilitate identi? For example, data generated in a laboratory test at a cyclic frequency of 10 Hz may not be applicable for predicting crack growth rates in a structure e47 is cycled at 0.

For some materials, particularly ferromagnetic specimens, this skin effect can be signi? Shorter current lead spacing may also be used provided that the uniform current A2.

This program uses the specimen K-calibrations for the C T and M T geometries given in the respective specimen aztm and also checks the data against the size requirements listed in each annex.

Stereoimaging or digital image correlation can be used to obtain high resolution displacement measurements on the specimen surface. This is due to the skin effect previously noted which effectively reduces the specimen thickness to the surface layers 66 and the fact that the output voltage is inversely proportional to the specimen thickness. Compliance is calculated by? The equations listed in the respective specimen annexes are derived under DC conditions for sharp cracks in the respective specimen geometries.

The machined notch plus the precrack must lie within the envelope, shown in Fig. Upon demonstrating that data obtained using E674 and K-decreasing procedures are equivalent for a zstm set of test conditions, the K-increasing testing may be eliminated from all replicate testing under these same test conditions. Corrected EPD measurements are then equal to one-half of the difference of the measured potential readings taken at each current polarity Current edition approved May 1, Recommended approaches which utilize the secant or incremental polynomial methods are given in Appendix X1.


The calibration constants ao and Vo may be any crack size and corresponding voltage measurement where the crack size has r647 determined using an alternate method. An extensive series of high magni? E — 11 3. This relationship may then be used in crack driving force xstm.

ASTM E – 11 Standard Test Method for Measurement of Fatigue Crack Growth Rates

To localize the crack initiation site s for the convenience of crack monitoring, three-point bending can be used to con? A minimum period of 24 h is recommended. Voltage sensing wire should be located diagonally across the starter notch or crack tip as shown in the respective specimen annexes to average measurements of non-uniform crack fronts.

Descriptions of other small e6447 crack experimental and analytical investigations are available in The rate of crack growth at Ni is obtained from the derivative of the above parabola, which is given by the following expression: Care must be taken to choose appropriate limits e6477 calculate compliance offset.

A K-decreasing test procedure which is better suited for rates below 10? NOTE 2—Flat bottom hole is a modi? During variable amplitude loading, crack growth rates can be 6 Subcommittee E In any case, the phenomenon is signi? The interruption time should be minimized less than 10 min. The length satm the machined notch in the M T specimen will be determined by practical machining considerations and is not restricted by limitations in the K-calibration.

Recommended intervals are given in the appropriate specimen annex. Analyze the data for compliance offset using the same procedure as would be used for a cracked specimen as described in X2. Variations in the gain of ampli? This results in lower net section stress and reduces the likelihood of premature fracture of sheet materials tested in highly corrosive environments.

Such curves are not limited to displacement measurements alone and can involve strain related quantities.

Fatigue crack growth rates over a wide range of DK have been reported to either increase, satm, or remain unaffected as specimen thickness is increased. Etching after a naturally-initiated crack has been located may be preferable in some cases, although chemical etching in this case may in?


Some are more amenable than others for routine use, and some require signi?

Originally approved in Control of environment temperature is also recommended. Complete, detailed test procedures are not prescribed. In these cases, a? Values cited are standard errors based on 62 residual standard deviations about the mean response determined from regression analysis. In this arrangement, the e6447 are astk more uniformly; thus, the minimum specimen gage length that is, the distance between the innermost row of bolt holes is relaxed to 1.

When loading variables are changed during a test, potential problems arise from several types of transient phenomenon The procedure for determining this operational DKth is given in 9. The outcome of this task group may in? Wherever these terms are not in agreement with one another, use the de?

Specimen configurations other than those contained in this method may be used provided that well-established stress-intensity factor calibrations are available and that specimens are of sufficient planar size to remain predominantly elastic during testing.

This observation is based on e6447 11 laboratories that provided valid near-threshold data. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

E — 11 testing. Fatigue crack growth r The maximum current that can be used with a particular specimen can be determined by monitoring the specimen temperature while increasing the current in steps, allowing sufficient time for the specimen to thermally stabilize.

Under these conditions, the voltage drop across the fatigue crack should remain constant throughout a complete force cycle assuming no crack extension. As used here, data quality is de?
