If this total strain is used to estimate the Young’s modulus of the material (E = σ /ε), the estimate will be low. If the test is conducted at a more rapid rate, there will be less time for viscous ﬂow during the test and the apparent modulus will increase. , the spring constant of the elastic component. Tests at even higher rates will produce no further increase in modulus. For all viscoelastic materials, moduli determined at rates less than the critical rate are “apparent” moduli and must be identiﬁed with the strain rate used.
11. (A) Stress versus time in a fatigue test. (B) Fatigue curve: fatigue stress versus cycles to failure. RATNER: Biomaterials Science Page: 31 32 1 PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS Toughness The ability of a material to plastically deform under the inﬂuence of the complex stress ﬁeld that exists at the tip of a crack is a measure of its toughness. If plastic deformation does occur, it serves to blunt the crack and lower the locally enhanced stresses, thus hindering crack propagation. To design “failsafe” structures with brittle materials, it has become necessary to develop an entirely new system for evaluating service worthiness.
If plastic deformation does occur, it serves to blunt the crack and lower the locally enhanced stresses, thus hindering crack propagation. To design “failsafe” structures with brittle materials, it has become necessary to develop an entirely new system for evaluating service worthiness. This system is fracture toughness testing and requires the testing of specimens with sharp notches. The resulting fracture toughness parameter is a function of the apparent crack propagation stress and the crack depth and shape.
