EXAMPLE 8.4 Identical compact tension specimens have been prepared to
determine the fracture toughness of the 7178 aluminum alloy, subjected to two
different heat treatments. The crack length and thickness of the samples are 4 cm
and 1 ...
using heat tinting, and single specimens, using compliance and electrical
potential techniques, are in excellent agreement. Apparently, the slight amount of
unloading associated with the compliance technique does not compromise the
Test results have confirmed the anticipated effect of this variable as evidenced by
a decrease in endurance limit with increasing frequency.30 Also, thermal failures
are affected by specimen configuration. As mentioned above, the temperature ...

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
