Finite element analysis (FEA) can provide increased accuracy in engineering critical assessment (ECAs) compared with the explicit equations and formulae in procedures such as R6 and BS 7910, allowing a reduction in conservatism. This work uses FEA to re-assess wide plate tests previously assessed using R6 and BS 7910, to demonstrate how modelling can improve the accuracy of a fracture assessment.
