    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


    The critical variables affecting the cleavage fracture of steels are rather well known. In this work these variables have been considered in the framework of a statistical model. Comparison of fracture toughness values predicted from the model and corresponding experimental values show excellent agreement for a variety of microstructures.
