Sample geometries with increased surface area showed a general reduction in fatigue lives at all stress levels at which failure occurred. For the intermediate fatigue lives at a stress amplitude of 200 MPa there is some overlap in the fatigue life ranges between each sample set. EFFECTS OF AGGREGATE TYPE, SIZE, AND CONTENT The effects of aggregate type, size, and content on the behavior of normal and high-strength concrete, and the relationships between compressive strength, flexural strength, and fracture energy are discussed. The concrete mixtures incorporate either basalt or crushed limestone, aggregate sizes of 12 mm ('h in.) or 19 mm (:Y. in.), and
By reducing the effective cross-sectional area difference between cube (prism) and cylinder during testing, a useful comparison can be made on the effect of specimen shape to its compressive strength. The initial target cross-sectional area for cylinder was a 45mm diameter (1590mm2), compared with 40 x 40mm (1600mm2) cube. Experimental Investigation of the Size Effect of the Mode The NSCB specimens have a wider size, disk radius values of 25 mm, 37.5 mm, 50 mm, and 75 mm, and a ratio of crack length to disk specimen radius of 0.4 to 0.6; in particular, the prefabricated crack width of this specimen type requires special processing methods, with a prefabricated crack width of less than 0.6 mm. Based on the Baant energy release rate theory, the size effects of NSCB specimens
Measure of the ductility of metals obtained in a tensile test. It is the difference between original cross sectional area of a specimen and the area of its smallest cross section after testing. It is usually ex-pressed as % decrease in original cross section. The smallest Specimen Size Effects In Slow Strain-Rate Testing bySpecimen Size Effects In Slow Strain-Rate Testing by William C. Porr, Jr. This type oftesting, although effective, was very time consurning. Inthe past or reduction of area, along with metallographic examination, be used to evaluate SCC in slow strain-rate tests. All three of these parameters are readily measurable, the elongation and UTS
is a measure of ductility. Percent Reduction in Area - The reduction in cross-sectional area of a tensile specimen at fracture = ((initial area - final area)/ initial area) x 100. Percent reduction in area is also a measure of ductility. Isotropic Isotropic materials have elastic properties that are Stress Strain Relationshipsis a measure of ductility. Percent Reduction in Area - The reduction in cross-sectional area of a tensile specimen at fracture = ((initial area - final area)/ initial area) x 100.

the size of the stylus tip will result in a reduction in the measured roughness average (Ra) due to the tips inability to contact the bottom of sharp valleys on the surface. A different type of effect is also possible for periodic roughness specimens with rectangular profiles, also Tension and Compression Testing Tension and Measurement of the specimen dimensions after testing also provides reduction of area and elongation values to characterize the ductility of the material. Tensile tests can be performed on many materials, including metals, plastics, fibers, adhesives, and rubbers. Testing can be performed at subambient and elevated temperatures.
showed a strong effect of alloy chemical com- position and primary so- lidification mode on cracking susceptibility. Consistent with these quantitative results, metallographic analysis of tested specimens with high ~th revealed tensile failure with a large reduction of area. A-z~ This type The Relation of Tensile Specimen Size and Geometry A family of tensile specimens was designed to obtain parametric data on the effects of specimen size and geometry for HY-100 steel. A total of twelve different specimen geometries were examined (figure 1). Three specimens of each geometry were tested, plus two extra specimens for the extreme geometries. Three different
This measurements are required to take into account the small variation of the specimens cross-section area which may occur during the milling operation of the specimen (this is required whatever Size Effect Studies on Notched Tensile Specimens at 3. a theoretical work on plasticity and damage models accounting for size effects. One material selected was the forged reactor pressure vessel material 20 MnMoNi 55, material number 1.6310 (heat number 69906). It was subjected to a size effect study on notched scaled tensile specimens. Specimens selected were of type T1,T2, and T3, respectively.
