An Identity Chart for Steel Fibers
Improvements in ductility and toughness by adding steel fibers to the shotcrete mix are sufficient to enable steel fibers to be used as replacement for steel mesh reinforcements. Steel...

Fracture Toughness of DMMC
The fracture toughness of discontinuous metal matrix composites (DMMC) is always less than the fracture toughness of the matrix, in the same heat treatment or annealed condition. If a...

Size, Temperature and Rate Effects on the Fracture Toughness of Saline Ice
This paper presents the results of an extensive experimental study performed with the aim of investigating the effects of temperature, size and loading rate on the fracture toughness of...

Estimating Damage and its Influence on Fracture Toughness
To estimate damage in a quantitative manner, a technique used whereby six values of linear strain are measured on a material element as a function of hydrostatic pressure. The high precision...

Vacuum Melting and Mechanical Testing of Simulated Lunar Glasses
Lunar silicate glasses may possess superior mechanical properties compared to terrestrial glasses because the anhydrous lunar environment should prevent hydrolytic weakening of the strong...

Interlaminar Fracture Toughness Test: Traditional and Modified
For brittle, transversely isotropic, composite materials we have developed an alternative Mode II interlaminar fracture toughness test (GIIc) that...

Mixture Considerations for High Performance Cement-Based Composites
In the present paper, mixture considerations for producing high performance cement-based composites are discussed. Effects of different factors such as grain size and fiber reinforcement...

The Effects of Thermal Variation in Fracture Toughness
Environmental temperature changes produce cyclic and thermal stresses in cylindrical structures. The probability of failure defined as the chance that a crack, growing under the influence...
