Note that as a/2c approaches 0.5, Q approaches 2.5, where \/\IQ equals 2/tt,
which is the solution for an embedded circular flaw or a semicircular surface flaw.
An embedded elliptical or semielliptical surface flaw will grow such that a/2c
certain critical decisions can be made. However, once any combination of two
key variables (fracture toughness, stress, and flaw size) is defined, the third factor
is fixed. A leak-before-break condition16 could develop in a manner shown in Fig
elliptical surface flaw with a and c dimensions of 0.15 and 10 mm, respectively (
Fig. 13.6a). For a design stress of 128 MPa, a fatigue life computation reveals that
the crack would penetrate the back surface after approximately 2,070,000 ...

This is one of the best textbooks on physical metallurgy. My preference is for Dieter's book, but that is because it was the textbook for my physical metallurgy course in graduate school. Hertzberg's book is more modern. Read full review
