THE usefulness of the K c and Kic indices of fracture toughness in evaluating high-strength alloys is now generally recognized. Since there were problems with the high-speed alternator rotors of the late 1950's, ~'2 there has been a persistent effort to extend the "Fracture Mechanic" measurements of KIc to medium- and low-strength steels. The rotors were so large that safety by virtue of conventional fracture mode transition temperature could not be assured. A decade later, similar questions… CONTINUE READING
