    Abstract The experimental programme described in the paper was aimed at an evaluation of fatigue crack growth (FCG) rate and threshold conditions in a reactor pressure vessel steel in laboratory air and in simple aqueous environment. Though the main target of the work was to enlarge the data basis for possible future needs of defect and risk assessment, an emphasis was put on an evaluation of crack growth mechanisms. It was shown that despite some recent works infirming crack closure phenomenon itself or methods of its evaluation, crack closure explained near-threshold fatigue crack behaviour in the More >
