This paper describes ductile tearing simulation for compact tension (C(T)) specimens using FE damage analysis based on the stress-modified fracture strain model. The side groove effect on J-resistance curve was estimated by experimental and analytical ways. In this paper, SA508 Grade 1A low alloy steel pipe material was considered. Tensile and C(T) specimens are simulated to determine the failure criteria with finite element method. Then, different shapes of C(T) specimens are analysed and the results from simulations are compared with test data for verification of proposed method. Overall, the predicted simulation results show good agreement with test data.
