Abstract: The influence of sample thickness on fatigue crack propagation rates in injection molded nylon 66 was determined by preparing 12.7 mm thick plaques along with more conventional 3.0 mm thick samples. Initial results suggested a large effect of thickness as the crack propagation rates were accelerated in the thicker samples and the stress dependence was also increased. Since the calculated thickness for a plane stress to plane strain transition in nylon 66 is 9.0 mm, it was thought that these results were relat…
