Abstract This paper summarizes experimental data on the fracture toughness of heat resistant pressure-vessel steels and welded joints for power equipment, and also on the effect of different process and experimental factors upon this property. Suggestions for refining standard relationships and for their use in the evaluation of high pressure vessel strength are given.
