Homework Ch. 9 2 Introduction to Materials Science 9.1 Cite at least two situations in which the possibilityof failure is part of the design of a component or product. 9.7 The tensile strength of brittle materials may be determined using a variation of Equation 9.1b. Compute the critical crack tip radius for an Al2O3 specimen that experiences tensile fracture at an applied stress of 275 MPa. Assume a critical surface crack length of 2 x 10 -3 mm and a theoretical fracture strength of E/10, where E is the modulus of elasticity. 9.18 Suppose that a wing component on an aircraft is fabricated from an aluminum alloy that has a plane strain fracture toughness of 40 MPa m. It has been determined that fracture results at a stress of 365 MPa when the maximum internal crack length is 2.5 mm. For this same component and alloy, compute the stress level at which fracture will occur for a critical internal crack length of 4.0 mm.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
