Paper Abstract

It has been demonstrated that the response of the SPATE 8000 depends not only on the alternating stress experienced by the object being examined but also, to a small extent, upon the mean stress about which the alternating stress is superposed. The 'thermoelastic constant' varies linearly with mean stress for each of the aluminium, steel and titanium alloys studied.
