The ρ and so crack C is the least likely to fail. • Question 2 2 out of 2 points A specimen of a 4340 steel alloy having a plane strain fracture toughness of 45 MPa m. It is √ known that the largest surface crack in this specimen is 0.75 mm long. What is the maximum stress this specimen can tolerate without fracturing. Assume that the parameter Y has a value of 1.0. Answer Selected Answer: 927 MPa Correct Answer: 927 MPa Respon se Feedbac k: Correct You must calculate the critical stress, σ...
