This investigation is aimed to examine the monotonic and cyclic fracture behaviour of AISI 304LN stainless steel and its weldments, in order to assess their integrity under seismic loading conditions. The monotonic fracture resistance of the steel has been determined using standard J-integral technique; whereas the cyclic fracture resistance has been evaluated using periodic unloading to different extents fixed by pre-determined R-ratio. Comparison of the fracture toughness values of the steel estimated under monotonic and cyclic loading indicates that the latter could be as low as one-fifth of the former. The observed degradation in cyclic fracture resistance has been attributed to crack tip re-sharpening during cyclic loading.
