Crack growth tests at 150-degrees-C under constant load conditions were performed on compact tension specimens of 7050-T73651 aluminium alloy. The d.c. potential drop method was employed to monitor crack lengths throughout the tests. Fracture mechanics parameters such as the stress intensity factor (K) and energy-rate line integral (C*) were used to establish correlation with the crack propagation rates. As a result of experiments it was found that crack growth rates (da/dt) versus K, over discrete ranges of rates, can be described as a power-law equation in the form da/dt= AK(n). The parameter C* appears to correlate well with the crack propagation rates through a single power law over a wide range of rates.

Yesil, Sertan; Winkelrnann, Charles; Bayram, Göknur; La Saponara, Valeria (Elsevier BV, 2010-10-25)
This paper documents the mechanical and electrical performance of self-sensing conductive polymer composites prepared with a low-cost technique and small hardware, able to considerably improve the dispersion and the surface adhesion of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in epoxy resin with respect to amine-modified CNTs and as-received CNTs. Surface treatment of the CNTs is performed using hexamethylene diamine, or a mix of sulfuric and nitric acid, and one of two surfactants (for the diamine treatment on...

Effect of stress ratio on the rate of growth of fatigue cracks in 1100 Al-alloy
Bilir, Ömer.G.; Harun, Metin (Elsevier BV, 1990-1)
Axial load fatigue crack propagation tests were conducted on notched sheet specimens made of 1100 aluminum alloy. These tests were made at stress ratios (ratio of the minimum stress to the maximum stress) ranging from −0.5 to 0.5 in order to study the effects of stress ratio on fatigue crack growth. Experimental fatigue crack propagation data were analysed using Paris-Erdoǧan stress intensity analysis. The data from the tests at different stress ratios showed that two regions, namely, region I and region I...
Investigating the effects of hardening of aluminium alloys on equal-channel angular pressing-A finite-element study
Karpuz, P.; Simsir, C.; Gür, Cemil Hakan (Elsevier BV, 2009-03-15)
Equal-channel angular pressing (ECAP) is a promising severe plastic deformation method for production of ultrafine-grained bulk metals and alloys with considerably improved mechanical properties. In this study, numerical experiments were carried out to investigate the effect of strain hardening of aluminum alloys on the process performance of ECAP via finite element modeling. In the constitutive model, isothermal-plane strain, frictionless condition was assumed. The numerical results showed that strain hard...
Stress intensity factor and compliance solutions for a single edge notched specimen with clamped ends
Blatt, Drew; John, Reji; Çöker, Demirkan (Elsevier BV, 1994-01-01)
A single edge notched geometry [SE(T)] with clamped ends is well suited for fracture toughness and fatigue crack growth testing of composites. Closed form expressions for the stress intensity factor and the compliance for an SE(T) with clamped ends were developed using finite element analysis. Using these expressions, automated crack growth tests were conducted on a monolithic Ti-1100 and a [90]8 SCS-6/Ti-24Al-l 1Nb composite. The crack growth behavior, characterized in terms of the crack growth rate versus...
