Scientific-Technical Section


Dependences for both endurance parameters (as applied to the Zhurkov equation) and endurance itself on the scale effect (SE) have been obtained theoretically on the basis of the established absence of an effect of temperature and loading rate on the intensity of the scale effect for brittle strength. Qualitative conformity of the dependences obtained with known dependences is demonstrated.
