    Abstract

    A difficulty associated with predicting structural integrity is that the surface cracks found in structural components are three-dimensional whereas the crack-tip opening displacement (CTOD) and J-integral analytical techniques were derived from two-dimensional theory. This paper provides data from specimens containing surface cracks (aspect ratio either 0.1 or 0.5 and crack depth-to-thickness ratio 0.6); presents measured values of CTOD, crack-tip opening angle (CTOA), and Δa; provides experimental results relative to the center of rotation and the use of the Newman-Raju solutions for predicting the variation in CTOD around the crack perimeter; and evaluates possible correlations between CTOD, CTOA, and Δa.
