The load was increased with average rate of 0,01 of fracture stress per minute and recorded using force sensor MTS 661 19F-01.
It is observed that the stress never decreases up to fracture stress and the stress-strain curves show four different regions with distinct behaviors.
Consequently the fracture load and by extension the fracture stress commonly used to characterize the quality and access the structural integrity of cracked wires may not be the best indicator of the quality and the structural integrity of the cracked wire and the displacement at fracture and by extension, the fracture strain could serve as a better indicator of the quality and structural integrity of cracked wire.
As with all GTP models, operation requires only as few simple steps; samples are equilibrated in the controlled environment, weighed, compacted using the GTP-1 in compaction mode, and then tested in the GTP-1 fracture mode to determine tablet fracture stress.
If all these factors due to swelling are included in equation (2), the effect of the swelling can clearly be seen since the fracture stress has been reduced by the swelling ratio.
Increasing the flaw size decreases the fracture stress curve, as in curve EF, until with increasing flaw size a limiting curve of fracture stress HJKL is reached.
It is clearly that the fracture stress of the samples without any pre damage has a large scatter range and a precise value can not be assigned.
Coverage includes experimental procedures and studies on the brittle fracture stress, Griffith theory of brittle failure, micromechanics, the role of pore fluids, friction and sliding, and brittle-ductile transition.
All CNT/PU films showed higher tensile modulus, yield stress and fracture stress than neat PU, and these parameters increased as the nanotube concentration increased.
Fusion welding creates residual weld stress and when it is superimposed on the local applied stress, the total can reach the fracture stress of steel and initiate a crack.
