An introduction to the development and use of the master curve method

Donald E. McCabe, John G. Merkle, Kim Wallin

Research output: Book/ReportBook (author)

Abstract

This new ASTM manual introduces the concept of the Master Curve Method so it can be understood and used by engineers who have had limited exposure to elastic-plastic fracture mechanics and/or advanced statistical methods. It addresses the practical design-related problem of defining the ductile-to-brittle fracture transition temperature of structural steels directly in terms of fracture mechanics data.
