Abstract : The present note describes some further work on the effect of pressure on the tensile fracture of a leaded alpha + beta brass used previously and an investigation into the fracture strain-pressure relationship of an alpha + beta brass. The purpose of these investigations was to establish whether the discontinuity found in the alpha-brass existed in these materials also.
