Effect of Specimen Size on Fracture Toughness of Mild Steel Using ANSYS

Authors(2) :-Niharika Sharma, Dr. Ganesh Doiphode

In this paper effective of specimen size on fracture toughness of mild steel is calculated based on ANSYS 16.0. Most engineering components and structures subjected to repeated fluctuating load cycles due to which it contain some form of stress raisers that results from geometrical or metallurgical discontinuities. In most of the cases such components fail due to the phenomenon known as fatigue. Fracture toughness is an indication of the amount of stress required to propagate a pre-existing flaw. It is a very important material property since the occurrence of flaws is not completely avoidable in the processing, fabrication, service of a material or component.
