At the highest dispersant levels, crazing increases and ligament width decreases to the point that limited plastic deformation is followed by brittle failure
at lower tensile strengths.
Despite the obvious brittle failure
of the component, catastrophic failure which causes a pre-mature sudden drop in load did not take place.
Fracture parameters used in experiments are given brittle failure
conditions with initial velocity.
They observed that the presence of a higher steel reinforcement may not allow the complete yielding of the primary reinforcement and it results in a brittle failure
due to the crushing of the compressed regions.
Table 1 presents ISO 10328 criteria at different anthropometric population weight percentiles for both ductile and brittle failure
Standard QC tests on polymers to meet mandatory test requirements--for example, to ensure against brittle failure
of key parts such as those that could compromise supplementary safety systems or cause injury to occupants.
For a longitudinal crack, a brittle failure
occurs when the SF is equal or less than one.
In this environment, a more ductile alloy under the given repeated shock load should increase the lifetime of brittle failure
modes, such as pad craters.
The maximum stress that has been induced though is less than the permissible limit; it has been observed that these Pandrol clips are mostly facing brittle failure
at the same spot.
use a yield criterion developed for incompressible viscous layers and show how it can be manipulated to produce effects similar to those of the Mohr-Coulomb criterion used in brittle failure
That research indicated that a less brittle failure
mode may be achieved with DRDC since the load is transferred over the bearing areas of the two staggered dovetails, dispersing the stress concentrations.
It is ductile, and so is less prone to brittle failure
than are other types of glass-reinforced material, according to GE.
The intergranular fracture indicated a brittle failure
mode and that the material had become embrittled.
Effects like crack propagation or brittle failure
can then be studied, which would be impossible on models used for standard crash simulations.
This transition can produce unexpected brittle failure
within components expected to exhibit ductile behavior.
