The present numerical study is an attempt to understand the dependency of characteristic distance on the fracture specimen thickness and temperature. The presented work will be useful to establish the characteristic distance prediction methodology using three dimensional FEM model. Based on the methods proposed for the numerical prediction of characteristic distance, it comes out that it depends on fracture specimen thickness and finally it converges after a specified thickness of fracture specimen. In Armco iron material, characteristic distance varies in temperature ranges where dynamic strain ageing phenomenon is observed, initially decrease and then increases again.
