## M$_7$C$_3$: The Story of a Misunderstood Carbide

Since the discovery of the M7C3-type carbide in 1935, it has been the subject of many experimental and theoretical studies. Initially, the structure was thought of as being either trigonal or hexagonal, while later publications indicated that the …

## Experimental and numerical study of the interaction between dynamically loaded cracks and pre-existing flaws in edge impacted PMMA specimens.

Dynamic fracture tests are carried out for four groups of hole-containing edge impacted specimens. The crack growth velocity, crack path, and dynamic toughness are extracted from the experiments using high-speed photography and digital image …

## Unsupervised Machine Learning in Fractography: Evaluation and Interpretation

Modern computer vision and machine learning techniques, when applied in Fractogra- phy bare the potential to automate much of the failure analysis process and remove human induced ambiguity or bias. Given the complex interaction between intrinsic …
