The problem of brittle fracture in metals
Hinkamp, Maddox Nelson Pieter
MetadataShow full item record
Attention has been focused in recent years on the all-important subject of brittle fracture. It ls well to point out that if there were no controversies or discrepancies in the theories concerning brittle fracture, and if the state of knowledge was in fairly satisfactory condition, the series epidemic of failures in welded ship structures during World War II might never have happened. Much of the recent investigation and attention given to this subject stems from this one series of failures as add»d impetus towards the solution of one of the most outstanding questions in metallurgy.
