The failure assessment curves derive from the square root of the ratio between the linear-elastic and the elastic-plastic energy release rates, computed from the domain-integral approach. This study examines both the material and geometric dependence of the failure assessment curves. The area reduction factor, used in defining the strength of the cracked joints, imposes a significant effect on the computed failure assessment curve. The failure assessment curves indicate negligible variations with respect to the crack-front locations and the material yield strength. The crack depth ratio exerts a stronger effect on the computed failure assessment curve than does the crack aspect ratio. This study proposes a parametric expression for the failure assessment curves based on the geometric parameters for surface cracks in circular hollow section X- and K-joints. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.||Source Title:||International Journal of Pressure Vessels and Piping||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/59057||ISSN:||03080161||DOI:||10.1016/j.ijpvp.2013.01.004|
