The effect of residual stresses on fracture behaviour of ferritic steels at low temperature has been investigated using a local approach based on the Beremin model [1]. The study aims to enhance the use of local approach in failure prediction when residual stress is present. A tensile residual stress field has been introduced in the laboratory specimens and their subsequent behaviour was investigated at low temperature. Local compression methods, including side-punching and in-plane loading, were employed to introduce residual stress fields. These methods are discussed and comprehensive range of experimental presented. The transferability of the Weibull parameters between the cracked specimens with different constraint, test temperatures and also from unstrained specimens to specimens with residual stresses are illustrated. The general scheme in failure prediction using the local approach is that the Weibull parameters in the Beremin type model calibrated to the as-received data should predict the failure following complex interaction of residual and applied stresses. The paper compares the predictions and the experimental results.
