Round Robin Benchmark Information

The information required for the AFGROW Round Robin life predictions are provided in the files shown below.

  1. AFGROW Workshop Round Robin Description
  2. Benchmark Data with Initial Crack Lengths
  3. Test Spectrum Files
  4. Prediction Results Template
  5. Analysis Questionnaire

Please read over the instructions and information provided in the round robin description. We are asking each participant to use the required information provided in order to limit some of the variability in the predictions, but we encourage everyone to be creative in other areas of analysis. The main goal of this effort is to assess the ability to predict the natural crack shape evolution as the corner crack grows through the thickness of the specimen.

Submit the completed results template and questionnaire to: by 31 July 2017. If you have any questions, please send them to We look forward to a good discussion at the Workshop in September.
