Possibilities are considered for an engineering approach to evaluating steel brittle failure resistance under the action of low climatic temperatures. Information is provided about critical brittleness temperatures for a number of carbon, silicon-manganese, and chromium-molybdenum steels applied to different forms of billets (rolled product, pipes, forgings) and objects made from them.
