The static and dynamic fracture toughness of six ferrous and nonferrous materials for LNG service has been explored over the 76 K to 111 K range. The ferrous materials study included both ferritic iron-based alloys containing nickel and an austenitic iron-based alloy containing manganese and chromium. The nonferrous materials are aluminum magnesium alloys with varying magnesium content. Both base plates and weldments were included in the study. Evaluation of the materials was undertaken using a variety of toughness tests including J-integral analysis. The relative toughness of the materials varies depending on the toughness criterion selected. However, the results show that acceptable levels of toughness in the LNG range may be achieved in all the alloys tested even though they have quite different composition and microstructure.
