The paper discusses the application of the process zone model to the problem of hydrided region formation and Delayed Hydride Cracking (DHC) in CANDU Zr-Nb pressure tube material. The special characteristics of the process zone approach, as used for the DHC problem, are highlighted, while making comparisons with the way in which it is more generally applied in other engineering situations.
