	  abstract     = {This study offers a new simple method for assessing
an axial part-through crack in a pipe wall. The method utilizes simple
approximate expressions for determining the fracture parameters K,
J, and employs these parameters to determine critical dimensions of a
crack on the basis of equality between the J-integral and the J-based
fracture toughness of the pipe steel. The crack tip constraint is taken
into account by the so-called plastic constraint factor C, by which the
uniaxial yield stress in the J-integral equation is multiplied. The
results of the prediction of the fracture condition are verified by burst
tests on test pipes.},
