The stress intensity factor was calculated using finite element analysis (FEM) to investigate the fracture behaviour of a structure made of high strength steel. Comparing with the wide plate test shows that the finite element analysis can be used for the fracture performance of the high strength steel while considering crack forms, boundary and loading conditions. The integration analyzing based on the fracture mechanics determinates the worst allowed conditions. The relationships between the crack sizes and the coefficient KI (stress intensity factor) were given after the coefficient was calculated at a certain initial crack. Then, a simplified formula was also obtained for engineering application.
