Ductile Fracture Behaviour of SA 533B Pressure Vessel Steel Under Mixed Mode (I/II) Loading O, Dong-Jun;
The aim of this study is to investigate the ductile fracture behavior under mixed mode (I/II) loading using SA533B pressure vessel steel. Anti-symmetric 4-point (AS4P) bonding tests were performed to obtain the J-R curves under two different mixed mode (I/II) loadings. In addition, the fractographic examination of fracture surfaces was carried out to compare with those of pure Mode I and Mode II. In conclusions, the J-R curves under Mixed Mode (I/II) loading were located between those of Mode I and Mode II loadings. When the mixture ratio of mixed mode (I/II) loading was high, the J-R currie of mixed mode (I/II) loading approached that of pure mode I loading after some amount of crack propagation. In contrast with the above fact, if the mixture ratio was low, the J-R curve looked after that of pure mode II loading. The fractographic evidences such as the shape of dimples under different loading conditions supported these conclusions.
