Simplified approach for ductile fracture mechanics SSTT and its application to Eurofer97

Mahler, Michael; Fessi, Stephane; Aktaa, Jarir

The determination of fracture-mechanical properties is often very challenging, because the available standards like ASTM E1820 need specific size-requirements for the specimen dimensions to obtain valid fracture toughness. Especially in the ductile regime, where the presence of plasticity around the crack tip is affected by the multiaxial stress state and its triaxiality, the size-requirements are frequently not met. The fulfilment of the size-requirements needs the testing of big specimens, which is often not possible. If we now think of specimens, which are irradiated in test modules for future fusion reactors, their size cannot be as big as required, because the available volume for irradiation is restricted. This fact highlights the need of Small Specimens Test Techniques (SSTT) for the determination of fracture-mechanical properties in the ductile regime.

The presented work focuses on an approach for the determination of fracture-mechanical properties in the ductile regime including stable crack growth and crack-resistance behavior. The authors have developed the initial approach some years ago and within this work the approach was simplified as much as possible. ... mehr
