Small Specimen Test Techniques: Fourth Volume

Editor(s): Mikhail Sokolov, John D. Landes, Glenn E. Lucas

STP 1418 features a global review of the latest research in small volume specimen testing. 31 peer-reviewed papers from an international collection of experts cover:

Fracture Toughness explores the effects of specimen size and geometry on constraint, which affects the ability to extract meaningful fracture toughness from small specimens.

Small Size Charpy V-Notch Specimens endeavors to develop correlations between full size specimens and a wide variety of subsized specimen geometries, down to some with cross sections of 1.5 mm x 1.5 mm.

Mechanical Properties describes techniques for extracting mechanical properties from a wide range of materials, including metals and composites.

Small Punch Test describes techniques to obtain mechanical and microstructural data. Two general categories of small punch tests are presented: 1) disk bend tests, where a spherical penetrator deforms a circumferentially-supported disc specimen, and 2) shear punch tests, where a flat-ended cylindrical punch blanks a hole in a clamped coupon specimen

Reconstitution Techniques describes various reconstitution techniques on subsized Charpy V-notch (CVN) specimens, including a large multi-lab European effort (RESQUE--Reconstitution Techniques Qualification and Evaluation Study).

STP 1418 is an important resource for nuclear engineers, materials testing engineers, fracture mechanics professionals, and researchers in engineering of structural components.
