    Abstract

    Analytical method has been developed to minimize and quantify the effect of crack length measurement interval Δa on the error due to the K gradient in the interpretation of da dN derived from crack growth test data using the secant method. The associated error has been quantified in a general form and used to demonstrate the specific errors due to the selection of average crack length a per ASTM E 647-91. Test Method for Measurements of Fatigue Crack Growth Rates. It is shown that the selection of the geometric mean (a¯=a1a2) in the data analysis will reduce the associated error in the crack growth rate interpretation. It is recommended that ASTM E 647-91 be revised accordingly.
