By using the Dugdale model for a crack in a plate, an improved formula was derived for the strain energy release rate, G. The formula has the same form as the solution for a linear elastic plate, except a correction factor is used which corrects for both the effect of yielding and the finite width of the plate. Curves are presented giving the values of the correction factor, and they indicate that the nominal stress to yield stress ratio has a pronounced effect on the strain energy release rate.
