Abstract:The ADN420 ferritic steel (A615 steel Grade 60 ), used as reinforcing bars (rebar) in concrete, shows the so called ductile to brittle transition. Room temperature is located on the lower third region of the transition zone. In this work, the fracture toughness of this steel working at room temperature was studied statistically. For such a purpose, 125 compact test specimens were machined from commercial bars and tested at room temperature to determine the Jc and K Jc critical fracture toughness values. S… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
