    Abstract

    The Tϵ* integral values associated with stable crack growth in A606 HSLA steel SEN specimens were determined experimentally and numerically. The displacement fields obtained through Moiré interferometry and elastic-plastic finite element analysis were used to evaluate Tϵ* associated with the moving crack tip. Tϵ* decreased with the reduction in the size of the integration contour, Tϵ, and continually increased with stable crack growth in this specimen. The measured and computed crack-tip opening angle (CTOA), on the other hand, was a constant 15° during stable crack growth after dropping from the measured and computed initial high values of 35 and 57°, respectively.
