The crack tip deformation at the onset of surface crack growth for four single edge cracked specimens having four different thicknesses were studied. The specimens were made of the ductile and tough HY-80 steel. The thickness contraction in the crack tip region and the tensile strain in the direction of load were measured. The crack tip necking-in acts like a notch. The depths, the root radii, and the angle changes of the nicking-in notches were measured. The results indicated that the near tip strain can be used as a fracture criterion of ductile and tough materials. It was also found that the fracture strengths of the cracked specimens can be correlated with the tensile ductilities measured with Clausing specimens.
