Article Preview

Possibility of use of Local Approach (LA) to prediction of the effect of neutron irradiation on the fracture toughness of pressure vessel steel is discussed. The fundamental of new version of LA to fracture is briefly stated. Specific feature of this version of LA is that Weibull distribution is not used for description of distribution function of fracture probability. Probability of fracture is estimated by modeling of regularities of the crack nucleus formation and instability in polycrystal. Findings on simulation of fracture of reactor pressure vessel steel 2Cr-Mo-V in initial and irradiated states are presented.
