Paper Title:
Fracture Mechanics and Non-Destructive Testing for Structural Integrity Assessment
  Abstract

Fracture mechanics parameters can be applied for the analysis of failures of structures, and also for prevention of failures when defects in a structure are detected and defined. The approach is presented through stages: detection of defects, stress-strain analysis of loaded component, characterization of material properties required for structural integrity assessment and application of convenient procedure. In this way the decision about next use of defective component can be made (to continue the operation, increased care by inspection, exclusion the component from next service, with eventual repair, if possible). Special attention is paid to the most popular testing procedures for crack resistance parameters.
