Abstract : Experimental results on the standard size sheet specimens having machined surfaces are illustrated. From the lmited data availale it appears that the data are in agreement with a maxium stress failure concept and that the equivalent particle size n is approximately 0.006 in. This is consderably higher than the particle size previously reported for a brittle titanium alloy. (Author)
