Overview: In this talk, we will discuss the brittle crack arrest methodology and how this can be applied to prevent brittle fracture of modern structural steels, particularly shipbuilding steels. We will consider the recommendations of the International Association of Classification Societies which will soon be updated to include small-scale testing of materials. This work encompasses small-scale testing which has been carried out at TWI Ltd to predict the brittle crack arrest properties of EH47 shipbuilding steel and is validated against large scale test results.
