  • SUBCRITICAL CRACK GROWTH DUE TO FATIGUE, STRESS CORROSION AND CREEP. ADVANCED SEMINAR ON FRACTURE MECHANICS, HELD IN ISPRA (I) ON OCTOBER, 19-23, 1983.

Abstract

Advanced Seminars on Fracture Mechanics are sponsored by the European Group on Fracture; ASFM 3 was held in Ispra on 19th-23rd October 1981. Two introductory chapters discuss parameters which govern subcritical crack growth and their evaluation in the linear and non-linear regimes, and defect assessment by two different procedures. A chapter is then devoted to the fundamentals and microstructural aspects of stress corrosion cracking. Advanced aspects of fatigue crack growth (fcg) are treated in the following section comprising six chapters starting with some special experimental techniques (acoustic emission, microhardness and COD measurements) followed by fcg under variable amplitude loading, fcg behaviour of short cracks, fcg due to loading near the fcg threshold, multiaxial fatigue and high strain fatigue, respectively. Two workshop problems are included. The next section focuses on corrosion fatigue: electrochemical fundamentals, problems of corrosion fatigue in chemical process industries, pressure vessels and piping of nuclear power plants, and offshore structures. Creep crack growth (ccg) is treated in the next two chapters: review of work on the competing mechanisms in notch rupture and ccg, and complementary discussion of theoretical models for describing ccg. The last two chapters discuss the still very open research area of interaction between creep fatigue and environment.
