After a short review of the 3 Codes in term of flaw evaluation, this paper will consider the Failure Assessment Diagrams (FAD) proposed in each of them.

The cracked components are evaluated by a dedicated diagram for margin evaluation of ductile tearing resistance of the components: the elastic stress intensity factor of the crack normalized by the toughness of the material on one axis and the applied stresses normalized by a Reference Stress in the other axis.

The 2017 Edition of RSE-M Appendix 5.4 and 5.6, the 2017 Edition of ASME XI Appendix H and the 2016 Edition of API 579 Part 9 will be used in this first comparison.
