A throughthickness 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) Mechanical Properties Value Fracture Toughness (K IC ) 35 MPam 1/2 Yield Strength 350 MPa Tensile Strength 425 MPa a) Would this loading cause unstable crack growth at this crack length? m MPa m MPa a Y K 6 . 26 ) 10 5 ( ) 200 )( 36 . 3 ( 4 = × = = π π σ K < K IC so the loading will NOT cause unstable crack growth at this length. b) If not, at what loading level would unstable crack growth be observed for this crack length?
