Abstract

The problem of predicting the favoured cleavage plane in b.c.c. metals is considered in the light of existing theories of crack propagation. It is shown that both {100} and {110} are likely cleavage planes in the absence of plastic deformation, but that plastic work is least for a {100} crack. The predictions are compared with experimental observations. © 1973.
