Fracture mechanics on cast iron

Determination of crack toughness

Fracture mechanics on cast iron

Fractured surface in cross section

Task

Determination of crack toughness at low temperatures below 0 °C and of cyclic crack growth curves (Paris Law)

Goal

Rapid and standard-compliant determination of fracture-mechanical characteristic values

Path

Planning and execution of fracture mechanics tests in accordance with recognised standards and, if necessary, post-evaluation of microstructures to determine the crack position
