The fiber fracture surface is smooth and there is separation between the matrices, showing that brittle fracture occurred in the specimen.
The investigation concluded that the flow regulator chamber failed via brittle fracture associated with a ductile-to-brittle transition as a result of the exposure of the part to stresses well below the yield strength of the material over an extended period of time.
For the prediction of brittle fracture, the use of TCD requires the knowledge of elastic stress field around stress concentrators (obtained through finite element analysis--FEA) and using two material parameters (L and [[sigma].
