Default Member Fails: Brittle Fracture

I'm dealing with some very large sections (356*406UC634/S275) and the following message comes up "Member Fails: Brittle Fracture"

What criteria are used to trigger this message please?

Regards
Colin

You can find a discussion of brittle fracture in the EuroBeam manual (pages 10-11 in the April 2013 edition) and more information on this page http://www.qub.ac.uk/structural_euro...re_handout.pdf and video lecture http://www.qub.ac.uk/structural_euro...e_fracture.wmv.

Currently the warning is triggered for beam flange thicknesses exceeding 50mm/32mm for S275/S355 steel. On checking we carried these limits over from ProSteel. I will look at refining this in the next release due out shortly.

Release 1.40a, now available via the Miscellanous, Check Website for Updates option, includes rewritten brittle fracture checking for beams which hopefully overcomes previous problems.
