Study Notes

Fracture Toughness

• Fracture toughness is the ability of a material to resist fracture when a crack is present
• It is a measure of a material's resistance to crack propagation

Units of Fracture Toughness

• The units of fracture toughness are typically measured in MPa√m (megapascals square root meters) or psi√in (pounds per square inch square root inches)

Y Parameter in Fracture Toughness Expression

• The Y parameter is a dimensionless constant that depends on the specimen geometry and the crack configuration
• It is used to relate the stress intensity factor to the applied load and crack length

Condition of Plane Strain

• Plane strain is a condition where the material is constrained to deform in a two-dimensional plane
• This occurs when the material is thick enough to prevent deformation in the direction perpendicular to the plane of the crack

Influential Factor on Plane Strain Fracture Toughness

• The most influential factor on plane strain fracture toughness is the thickness of the material
