    Sixteen peer-reviewed papers provide a global review of the latest research in small volume specimen testing. These papers cover:

    • Specimen Size Limitations in J-R Curve Testing

    • Fracture Toughness Evaluation

    • Application of Subsize Specimens for Re-Irradiation Embrittlement Monitoring of First Generation VVER-440 RPV Steels

    • Use of KLST-type Miniature Charpy Specimens

    • Small Punch Test

    • And much more!
