Assessing the possibility of predicting the temperature dependence of fracture toughness for materials of VVER-1000, based on the probabilistic aspects
The article examines the possibility of applying the concept of the master curve for predicting the temperature dependence of fracture toughness on the basis of small-scale test samples for the material used in the manufacture of VVER-1000.
