    Features a global review of state-of-the-art research in miniature specimen testing. This comprehensive volume includes 38 peer-reviewed papers from an international collection of experts in the field and covers the following areas:

    • International testing program evaluation to compare miniature specimen testing results and investigate the impact of testing variables on component behavior predictions

    • Innovative methods for obtaining and applying data from small specimens

    • Improved correlation methods with standard-size specimens and test techniques

    • The impact of numerous crucial parameters on the reconstitution process, including such areas as welding technique, insert size and specimen orientation

    • Ways to correct and utilize measurements made using very small fracture toughness specimens

    • The use of small fatigue-precracked round bars to measure pressure vessel materials fracture toughness

    • Improvements and innovations in punch and disk testing techniques.

    An important resource for materials testing engineers, fracture mechanics experts, nuclear engineers, researchers in engineering of structural components, and metallurgists.
