This prEN contains design rules for selecting and specifying steel materials that are resistant to failure by brittle fracture and lamellar tearing. Brittle fracture is characterized as failure of a structural element without significant plastic deformation. Lamellar tearing is characterized as failure of parent metal by delamination along planes of segregation in its microstructure as a result of excessive through-thickness strain.
