Fracture Toughness of Metals (K1c)
This test method covers the determination of fracture toughness (K1c) of metallic materials under predominantly linear-elastic, plane-strain conditions using fatigue precracked specimens having a thickness of 1.6 mm (0.063 in.) or greater2 subjected to slowly, or in special (elective) cases rapidly, increasing crack-displacement force.
- ASTM E399
