Understanding Fracture Toughness for Pipeline Crack Assessment

Fracture toughness does not have a consistent meaning in the pipeline industry. This can lead to an assumed definition of material toughness that can be applied incorrectly in pipeline engineering critical assessments. This course will present fracture toughness definitions and test methods applicable to pipelines, including ASTM testing standards that describe the J-integral, CTOD, KIC, and Charpy test methods. Small-scale specimen set up and testing will be demonstrated in a laboratory.
