ASTM E2899 Measurement of Initiation Toughness in Surface Cracks

ASTM E2899 Measurement of Initiation Toughness in Surface Cracks

ASTM E2899 test method deals with the measurement of toughness in fatigue sharpened, semi-elliptical surface cracks under tension and bending. This method is used to detect the initiation of crack extension in detail under specific conditions and applies to homogeneous metallic materials that are stress-free. SI units are considered to be standard.

    Scope:

    ASTM E2899 test method defines a standard for test and analysis of surface cracks that aid in research and helps explain test specimens in three regimes: an elastic-plastic regime, a linear-elastic regime, and a field-collapse regime. It provides details about the design, crack-front behavior, and toughness of the material. The electric potential, crack mouth opening displacement, and acoustic emissions are detected in this method.

    Procedure:

    In ASTM E2899, the fracture toughness is calculated as a function of toughness and constraint values. The testing apparatus comprises notches and fatigue sharpening surface cracks with the specimens that show the tearing upon applying tension or bending force. The characteristics of the specimen are carefully measured, and the testing is initiated under displacement control. Mechanical alignment is used to deal with non-uniformity. A bend testing fixture is installed, and the tension is applied to the specimen. The region of the crack is observed and compared with material properties.

    Specimen size

    For ASTM E2899 testing, the specimen size should be as per requirements, with the weight and length measurements taken as follows:

     W ≥ 5 × 2 c and L ≥ 2W.

    Here, c= surface crack length

    Data:

    A toughness-constraint locus is created in ASTM E2899 testing by comparing Kφ or Jφ to the values obtained in the variable constraints of the specimens.
    Calculate Kφ with the specimen dimensions, crack dimensions, initiation force (Pi) or moment (Mi), and the initiation angle (φi) using the appropriate equations.

    Conclusion:

    ASTM E2899 test method defines a standard for test and analysis of surface cracks that aid in research and helps explain test specimens in three regimes: an elastic-plastic regime, a linear-elastic regime, and a field-collapse regime.
