What is the Damage Tolerant Design Handbook?

The DTDH is a comprehensive compilation of fracture and crack growth data for high strength alloys. The handbook is a compilation of mechanical property data that are useful for damage tolerant design and analyses. Each alloy section contains a data summary, fracture toughness data, and crack growth resistance data. The fracture toughness, crack growth, R-curve, sustained load, and threshold data are for alloy and stainless steels, nickel based super alloys, titanium alloys, and aluminum alloys. The five-volume, 3600 page set was compiled by the Materials Directorate of Wright Patterson Air Force Base. It is available in searchable PDF format.
