Application of the European flaw assessment procedure SINTAP to thin wall structures subjected to biaxial and mixed mode loadings

Abstract

A recently proposed slightly modified version of the European flaw assessment procedure SINTAP for thin wall structures has been applied to another 35 thin sheets made of two different aluminium alloys and two ferritic steels. The specimens were subjected to biaxial and mixed mode loadings. It is shown that the method allows predictions of the load versus crack extension characteristics with acceptable conservatism.
