Abstract: The report presents the outcome of a comprehensive programme of fracture experiments addressing three nuclear waste canister inserts, which have been produced from ductile cast iron. Specific aspects related to testing the ductile cast iron are considered. J-integral at fracture initiation and subsequent crack growth resistance are given for various sampling positions within the inserts and for two temperatures, i.e. 0ºC and room temperature. Basic statistical treatment of the data is performed and the results are related to other material properties.
