This paper presents the results of a study on the effect of magnetic fields on the moment intensity factors in the through-cracked soft ferromagnetic plates with fixed ends. The experiments were conducted on a ferritic stainless steel with the through-cracked plate specimen geometries in a uniform, static transverse magnetic field. Strain gages were used to evaluate the magnetic-moment intensity factors. The experimental results were given for a single-internal crack, a single-edge crack, and two symmetric-edge cracks. The magnetic-moment intensity factor estimated from the measured strains was in good agreement with the theoretical calculations based on the authors' previous work.
