Handbook of Crack Opening Data
A Compendium of Equations, Graphs, Computer Software and References for Opening Profiles of Cracks in Loaded Components and StructuresBy
- T.G.F. Gray
Written mainly for specialists in non-destructive examination and fracture mechanics, this book provides means to estimate the opening profiles of cracks in loaded structures. Equations, non-dimensional graph plots, computer software, background information and references are given which permit the calculation of the separation distances of crack faces as a function of crack size, applied loading etc. Sixteen different cases are covered by this Handbook.
