Determining the temperature dependence of fracture toughness on the basis of the master curve and the basic curve concept
This article examines the evaluation techniques of the temperature dependence of fracture toughness with a predetermined boundary. It shows a possibility of their appliance for the materials used in the manufacture of nuclear reactor vessels.
