Abstract

This article defines different types of small cracks and identifies the different factors that influence small-crack behavior. Appropriate analysis techniques, including both rigorous scientific and practical engineering treatments, are briefly described. Important material data issues are addressed, including increased scatter in small-crack data and recommended small-crack test methods. The article highlights the applications where small cracks may be particularly important.
