MNL52: Pre-Cracking and Side-Grooving of Specimens

    Pages: 2    Published: Jan 2005


    THE CLEVIS DESIGNS OF FIGS. 10 AND 11 ARE ALSO SUITABLE FOR pre-cracking compact specimens, but instead of using ultra high strength steels, use high strength steels with yield strengths in the range of 100-140 ksi. These steels are less sensitive to fatigue crack initiation at sharp corners.
