    The formalism presented in the engineering treatment model (ETM) as well as the background of the method are assessed. Special attention is focused on different assumptions and properties of the ETM. The validity and use in an engineering fracture analysis is considered, and the ETM is compared to R6 revision 3 failure assessment diagrams (FADs) options 1 and 2. A discussion concerning the usability of ETM and its possible deficiencies is presented. The comparison presents the similitude between the crack driving force estimates of the ETM and FAD treatments based on the R6 method.
