Estimating the brittleness of steel from the type of fracture

Conclusions

  1. 1.

    Estimating the energy content of fracture processes in steel from the outward appearance of the fracture is a rough approximation, since microplastic deformation is not taken into consideration.

  2. 2.

    Estimating the properties of steel from the type of fracture is not the only criterion of the steel's susceptibility to brittle fracture.
