A method for calculation of fracture toughness requirements for ordinary structural steel is described. The method is based on typical loading cases and takes distributed load and fracture toughness into account while the size of an assumed crack is kept deterministic. Transferability has been studied by means of full scale testing of structural elements and laboratory specimens extracted from these. Particularly for older and inhomogeneous steels transferability is obtained under similar constraint and for full thickness laboratory specimens. Examples of toughness as a function of required safety are given.
