    Tension tests of notched cylindrical specimens can be used for screening thick aluminum alloy plate, extruded shapes, and forgings for fracture toughness. The influence of certain testing variables, such as method of gripping, specimen diameter and length, notch tip radius, eccentricity, and rate of loading have been studied.
