Observations on flaw Tolerance and brittle Fracture - The Effect of Post weld Heat Treatment

2018

This article summarizes aspects of recently published Reference [2], where a rigorous approach to generate impact test exemption curves and to determine appropriate Charpy impact test temperatures by establishing separate as welded and PWHT curves is presented. This approach permits direct comparison of flaw tolerance for as-welded and PWHT components using the Fracture Toughness Master Curve (Master Curve)
