Comparison of Compliance Results for the Wedge-Loaded Compact Specimen



Results of the ratio of stress intensity factor to crack-mouth displacement as a function of crack length are presented for the wedge-loaded compact specimen. Comparisons are made between experimental compliance results, numerical results from collocation methods, and deep-crack limit-solution results. Applications are for crack-arrest and stress-corrosion-cracking tests for metals and other materials under predominantly linear elastic conditions.
