Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


As explained in Chap. 2, the ARAMIS system is able to capture the surface deformation of the material and monitor the crack propagation on the surface of e.g., the C(T)-specimen. In this chapter, fracture toughness tests of S355 base material are performed on C(T)-specimens with an RMC 100 universal test machine. During the tensile test process of the C(T)-specimen, the ARAMIS system captures the live crack propagation on the surface of the C(T)-specimen.
