Fracture mechanics research on the effects of constraint on fracture has predominately focused on mechanically loaded structures. However, defects are often located in regions where residual stress may be acting in addition to mechanical loading. The aim of this PhD is to examine the combined effects of residual stress and constraint on ductile and brittle fracture
