SYMPOSIA PAPER Published: 01 January 1965

Introduction to the Panel Discussion


During the planning for this Symposium it became quite evident that ample opportunity should be provided for those interested in fracture testing to ask questions of the authors and to make comments on their papers. Such opportunity is normally provided by a discussion period after each presentation, but this is almost always too short to be effective. It was therefore decided to devote an entire session to a panel discussion, the panel being made up of a group of people who have been closely connected with the ASTM Special Committee for Fracture Testing of High Strength Materials, and most of whom also wrote papers for the symposium. The panel discussion was based on questions submitted to the members. These related not only to information presented in the symposium papers but also included questions of general interest in fracture mechanics.
