Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 8)


The use of metals at cryogenic temperatures has become especially important in the missile and space vehicle era. As a result, many investigators are studying the effects of stress concentrations, section size, strain rate, and other parameters at subzero temperatures.
