This aspect of the fracture behaviour of aluminium alloys appears to have attracted little attention, and data on high strain rate fracture properties are very limited. The fracture mechanics of fast fracture and crack arrest is a highly specialised topic and the determination of dynamic stress intensity factors is a very difficult problem, involving a combination of analysis and very sophisticated experimental techniques.  Thus the residual strength of damaged structures may be assessed, material and fabrication tolerances specified and crack monitoring schedules set for damage tolerant designs.

E) I­sections, web eccentricity.  This value can reach 10% in the case of thin profiles less than 5 mm thick.  This fact can be explained by the extrusion process of hollow sections which produces nonuniform thickness.  Measurements gave ‘eccentricities’ lying between 3 and 9%.  3(d)).  This imperfection, even if within the tolerance limits, causes an eccentricity of the load which has to be added to the initial out­of­straightness.  However, even the most severe condition, e=L/1600, when added to the initial out­of­ straightness v o , is such that it is less than the limit value L/1000: (e+v o )≤L/1000 This shows that the L/1000 value can also be conveniently used to take account of the latter imperfection.
