    Abstract

    Stress intensity factors were calculated for an edge crack subjected to time varying surface heat transfer coefficients and to cyclical ambient temperatures. Both constant and varying material properties were used and values of KI are presented as functions of crack depth and time. Substantial changes in the maximum values of KI were noted for these different cases. In general, quench tests with specimens whose material properties increase with temperature show much lower values of KI than do specimens with material properties which are either constant or decrease with temperature.
