DefinitionToughness:the ability of a material todeform plastically and toabsorb energy in theprocess before fractureThe key to toughnessis a good combinationof strength and ductility


Fracture toughness valueStress Intensity Factors of Cracks K C aCK C is the fracture toughness in unit ofMPamY is a dimensionless factor dependingon the geometry of the specimen orstructural componentσ is the remote loading stress in MPa or psia is the crack length in meters or inches


Fracture toughness valuesStress Intensity Factors of Cracks K CK IC , K IIC , K IIICMode I :opening modeMode II :sliding modeMode III :tearing mode


Fracture toughness valueStress Intensity Factors of Cracks K CCrit. stress :acC1YK ICKaCrit. crack length :ICYa C = critical crack length (surface crack),one half crack length (intenal crack)σ = the remote loading stressK IC = the fracture toughness, when thesample has a thickness less than BY = a dimensionless factor dependingon the geometry of the specimenσ C = critical applied loading stressthat causes the material to fail


Toughness tests Charpy testIzod testCompact tension specimen


Charpy testK imp is the impact toughnessK QW/SW is the work, required for breaking the specimenm is the pendulum massS is the cross section area of the specimen at thenotch

Factors influence on toughness‣ Temperature‣ Strain rate (rate of loading)‣ Thickness‣ Microstructure


Temperature‣ toughness decrease as the temperature lowered


Strain rate (rate of loading)‣ toughness decrease as the rate of loading increase


ThicknessB2.5KICY2‣ toughness decrease with increasing samplethickness B
