    The cleavage toughness of a carbon-manganese electroslag weld metal has been measured in the transition region and related to measurements of the inclusion size distribution. Results were interpreted using the “weakest link” theory, based on the hypothesis that fracture occurs when the local stresses acting on a microcracked inclusion become large enough to propagate the microcrack.
