Finite element analysis procedures are utilized to provide theoretical calibration curves for the electrical potential crack-monitoring system as applied to single-edge-notch (SEN) and compact tension (CT) fracture specimens. The results are compared to existing calibrations for such test piece geometries derived using experimental, electrical analog and analytical (conformal mapping) procedures.
