Tungsten-silver materials were made by two different powder metallurgical techniques which resulted in alloys having a wide latitude of structural variation in terms of volume fraction, particle size, and distribution. A correlation of GIc, the critical strain energy release rate, was made with the quantitative metallographic parameters ¯L3Ag, the mean intercept length within the silver phase; C, the contiguity of the tungsten phase; and
