A computer program—FACTUS (fracture analysis of crack tips using SPATE)—has been developed for the efficient analysis of thermoelastic data obtained from around a crack tip. The program is based on earlier work for the determination of stress intensity factors (SIFs), and also includes a novel solution procedure for the derivation of the non-singular stress term ?0x . The program has been used in the analysis of a series of large plate specimens with central or edge slots/cracks. The derived SIFs are compared with independent values. Issues, e.g. crack closure and the extent and effect of the plastic zone, are discussed.
