Description

In order to determine the integrity and safety of a structure, any fracture mechanics model requires information about the size, location and geometry of a defect, the mechanical properties of the material, and the stress field in the vicinity of the defect. The stress can be due to external forces or due to residual stresses. Current nondestructive evaluation techniques can determine the size, location and to some extent the geometry of defects. However, there are no simple methods by which mechanical properties of a material can be characterized nondestructively or the stresses in a component can be measured or analysed.
