Abstract : Representative samples of 5Ni-Cr-Mo-V steel in the product forms of plate and weld metal were investigated with respect to fracture toughness characterization features provided by the Dynamic Tear and Charpy V-notch tests. The intrinsic fracture propagation features were defined by the energy-temperature relationships obtained with the dynamic tear test. (Author)
