HOMEWORK # 9 Name _____________________________________________ ENMA 300 DUE: Thursday, November 11, 2010 1. A through-thickness crack of length 0.5 mm grows from a 10 mm diameter hole in a 25 mm thick plate of hardened Al that has the properties listed below. The crack is subjected to a nominal stress of 200 MPa, perpendicular to the crack. (Y=3.36) a) Would this loading cause unstable crack growth at this crack length? b) If not, at what loading level would unstable crack growth be observed for this crack length? c) At the original loading of 200 MPa, what crack length would be the minimum needed to cause unstable crack growth. d) If there was a bolt through the hole with a 15 mm diameter head, would the critical crack at 200 MPa be detectable and why? e) Is the thickness of the plate sufficient to make the calculation valid? And why? Mechanical Properties Value Fracture Toughness (K IC ) 35 MPa-m 1/2 Yield Strength 350 MPa Tensile Strength 425 MPa

    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.
