Abstract

The present studies were instigated to determine the feasibility of applying simple models to predict the variation of both lower and upper shelf static and dynamic fracture toughness with temperature and strain rate for two ferritic alloy steels utilized in the construction of nuclear pressure vessels, namely SA533B-1 and SA302B. The work constitutes an extension of studies by Parks (1976) who showed the applicability of the RKR model to predict lower shelf static toughness in SA533B-1.
