-RECITATION 21) Consider a metal single crystal oriented such that the normal to the slip plane and the slip direction are at angles of 60o and 35o, respectively, with the tensile axis. If the critical resolved shear stress is 20.7 MPa, will an applied stress of 45 MPa cause single crystal to yield? If not, what stress will be necessary? 2) The critical resolved shear stress for a BCC metal is 0.65 MPa. Determine the max. yield strength for a single crystal of this metal pulled in tension. 3) Some aircraft component is fabricated from an aluminum alloy that has a plane strain fracture toughness of 40 MPa m. It has been determined that fracture results at a stress of 300 MPa when the maximum internal crack length is 4.0 mm. For the same component and alloy, will fracture occur at a stress level of 260 MPa when the maximum internal crack length is 6.0 mm? Why or why not? 4) A cylindrical 1045 steel bar is subjected to repeated compression-tension stress cycling along its axis. If the load amplitude is 66700 N, compute the minimum allowable bar diameter to ensure that fatigue failure will not occur.

5) List four measures that may be taken to increase the resistance to fatigue of a metal alloy
