Abstract : The influence of repeated loadings on the susceptibility of weldments to fracture in a brittle manner is studied for an ABS-Class C steel. The test members have consisted primarily of 12, 24 and 36 in. wide notched-and-welded specimens that, at low temperatures, have been known to provide low-stress brittle fractures. (Author)
