AbstractIn the paper the numerical analysis of the stress fields for 145Cr6 steel, near crack tip is presented, based on three-dimensional finite element method (FEM) analysis. The FEM analysis is focused on SEN(B) specimens with relative crack length a/W ≈ 0.30. In addition to the presentation of the normal components of the stress tensor, the paper presents selected measures of stress triaxiality parameters, measured for the value of the J-integral, corresponding to the experimentally
