Ductile Fracture of Metals by Necking – Cup and Cone Failure

Ductile Fracture of Metals by Necking – Cup and Cone Failure extensive plastic deformation and energy absorption (“toughness”) before fracture Fracture: separation of a body into pieces due to stress, at temperatures below the melting point. Steps in fracture: crack formation crack propagation Major Fracture Mechanisms Depending on the ability of material to undergo plastic… Read More »
