We like keep everyone informed on new information available in the AFGROW fracture mechanics database (AFMAT). We continue to add new material data and new tabular curve fits to the database. The following updates have recently been made to AFMAT.
New Crack Growth Rate Test Data:
New Tabular Crack Growth Rate Data Fits:
Revised Tabular Crack Growth Rate Curve Fit:
As always, the references for all of the tabular curve fits are provided in the AFMAT database along with a screen plot of the raw data overlaid on the curve fits. The AFGROW tabular look-up input file may be downloaded directly from AFMAT for your convenience. We will continue to add new data and curve fits on a regular basis. We hope that this information will be helpful to you. If you have any requests for more information, please let us know.
