This work describes a local approach to cleavage fracture (LAF) incorporating the statistics of microcracks to characterize the cleavage fracture toughness distribution in structural steels. Fracture toughness testing conducted on standard compact tension C(T) specimens for a 22NiMoCr37 pressure vessel steel provides the cleavage fracture resistance data needed to determine the measured toughness distribution. Metallographic examination of etched surfaces for the tested steel also provides the…

Incorporation of Obstacle Hardening into Local Approach to Cleavage Fracture to Predict Temperature Effects in the Ductile to Brittle Transition Regime
TLDR
New Weibull stress formulation with thinning function based on obstacle hardening model, which modifies the number of cleavage-initiating features with temperature, accurately predicts the fracture toughness at any temperature in the transition regime without relying upon empirical fits for the first time.
Use of local approaches to calculate changes in cleavage fracture toughness due to pre-straining and constraint effects
Abstract Presented are experimental data and analyses of fracture toughness tests across three different crack tip constraint conditions and two different material conditions – as-received and
