## Stopped at a tabular values from the handbook

For the solution of one of tasks I work with the handbook by author Y. Murakami - "Stress intensity factors handbook", Vol 1. I try to deal with tabular values for a choice of correction coefficient "f_1"which enters a formula for coefficient of intensity factors "K_1". Correction coefficient (on the formula given in the reference book) depends only on the "alpha" variable which represents itself the relation of the geometrical sizes, however at a choice of tabular value for correction coefficient of "f_1" one more numerical scale appears there (values in it change from size 0.000 and to 0.010). What mean these values from 0.000-0.010? I looked at all first volume of this handbook, and also reference article , , , but didn't find a mention of it there about these values. There are any ideas? Perhaps I missed something.      1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Incidentally, the handbook does not have the whole table for "f_1", but only the value to a value of 0.790. While at the same time said formula for "f_1" operates with an accuracy of 0.5% for values between 0.2 and 1.0.

The matrix function will work with a predefined function. I like to use local functions if they're simple and I'm only going to use them once

I designed matrix as a direct replacement for the built-in matrix function as I got fed up with rescaling things to cater for the implied integer grid, and I also wanted a function that would work with string functions in earlier versions of Mathcad.

I've got a related function Matrix that returns the 'x' and 'y' vectors as well.  Stuart  Gravel

Values in the table are from 0.000 desviation from the formula for f.I(alpha) (and the first column are the exact values for the expression) and some degree of compliance which vary from 0.000 to 0.010. I guess that this is according ref :

" ... It is the purpose of this report to present new expressions which are at least as accurate as those in E 399-74, and which cover much wider ranges of a/W: for the three-point bend specimen from 0 to 1; for the compact specimen from 0.2 to 1 ..."

This correction is made just because " ... It is explicitly stated in the standard, however, that these expressions should not be used outside the range of relative crack length a/W from 0.45 to 0.55. ..."

So, are the correction for the expressed formula f.I(alpha)  Peridot

I'm not sure that's the case, Alvaro.  I think it's just a compact way of displaying the data ... rather like good, old-fashioned log tables.

 I guess that this is according ref :

Do you mean Ref ?

So, are the correction for the expressed formula f.I(alpha)

The introduction also states "While this range is sufficient for the purpose of E 399, the same specimen types are often used for other purposes over a much wider range of a/W; for example, in the study of fatigue crack growth".   From my reading, this makes it more of an expansion than a correction.  The difference between the 2.90 and 2.95 values is about 1 %; I can't see anything in the text or Table 1 that indicates the 2-digit values are any more accurate than the 3-digit values.

So we have a split decision here?   Peridot

Нет, мы должны уладить это, как мужчины.  mano a mano.   Pistols at dawn ... unheated water pistols, that is, on a frigid Moscow winter day! Regardless of the reason why the tabulation occurred, my worksheet makes it clear that the values across the top are the 3rd decimal digit - evaluating the function under this assumption agrees with the printed table.

No Split decision. Stuart have the match here. Even "mano a mano" can be interpreted also as draw (tablas), it was maybe un cara a cara.  Peridot

I'll stick with "mano a mano" then, Alvaro, if it's a draw! Stuart  Ruby I
