    Factors affecting the cleavage fracture stress and the fracture toughness K 1C in steel have been examined. A statistical method based on carbide induced cleavage fracture is proposed, by which it is possible to estimate the fracture toughness and study the effect of different variables. The predictions made are in excellent agreement with experimental results for a variety of microstructures.
